The FT-IR and FT-Raman spectra of 1,5-dimethylnaphthalene (15DMN) and 2,6-dimethylnaphthalene (26DMN) were recorded in the regions 4000-400 cm-1 and 4000-100 cm-1. The fundamental vibrational frequencies and intensity of vibrational bands were evaluated using density functional theory (DFT) and standard B3LYP/6-311+G** basis set combination. The obtained vibrational spectra were interpreted, with the aid of normal coordinate analysis based on a scaled quantum mechanical (SQM) force field. The infrared and Raman spectra were predicted from the calculated intensities. Comparison of simulated and experimental spectra explores important information about the ability of the computational method in describing the vibrational modes. Unambiguous vibrational assignments for all the fundamental frquencies were made using the total energy distribution (TED). Further, density functional theory (DFT) combined with quantum chemical calculations to determine the first-order hyperpolarizability.
