Title The vibrational spectrum of indole
Abstract We have obtained the first inelastic neutron scattering spectra of indole, a fundamental component of many important bio-molecular systems, including the amino acid tryptophan. Spectra of the powder, aligned crystals, and 1, 3 deutero indole are given. This has provided the first clear comparison with ab-initio frequency calculations of indole in the vapour and crystal phases. Details are extracted and assignment schemes given. The use of these indole assignments as a basis for understanding the spectra of substituted indoles is demonstrated by the treatment of the INS spectra of the 5- and 6-fluoro indoles.
