Abstract Raman and i.r. spectra in the region below 400 cm-1 are reported for the compounds, Hg(OOCCH3)2, Hg(OOCCD3)2, Hg2(OOCCH3)2, Hg2(OOCCD3)2 and of a saturated sodium acetate solution containing dissolved Hg(OOCCH3)2. Spectra of Hg(OOCCH3)2 in aqueous solution are interpreted in terms of a covalent molecular model. There does not appear to be significant complexation of Hg(II) acetate by acetate in aqueous solution. Both HgHg and HgO stretching frequencies are reported for Hg2(OOCCH3)2. The HgHg stretching frequency is correlated with data for other mercury(I) compounds. Vibrational spectra are also reported of compounds with the empirical formulation XHg(OOCCH3), where X = CN and SCN. These spectra are interpreted on the basis of a valence force field approach, in terms of either a mixed molecular formulation XHg(OOCCH3) or a mixed crystal formulation HgX2 . Hg(OOCCH3)2. The cyanide compound appears to be a genuine mixed molecule whereas the thiocyanate compound seems to be more appropriately described by the latter formulation.
