Vibrational spectral studies of L-methionine L-methioninium perchlorate monohydrate.

The infrared and laser Raman spectra of L-methionine L-methioninium perchlorate monohydrate were recorded at room temperature and the vibrational assignments of the observed wave numbers were made. The presence of both the carbonyl and the ionized carboxylic groups has been identified in the title complex. The L-methionine and L-methioninium the cation have different conformations. This together with the different environment has seen by the two -CH(2)- groups in each skeleton cause several of the group wave numbers to occur as doublets or as broad bands. The perchlorate anion was found to be in the T(d) symmetry in the methionine environment. The coordination to other ligands in the crystal through hydrogen bonding does not affect this symmetry. The extensive intermolecular hydrogen bonding in the crystal was identified by the shifting of bands due to the stretching and bending modes of the various functional groups. Fermi resonance has also been observed.[1]
