The FTIR and Raman spectra of 6-hydroxypurine were recorded
and all the 36 (25a' + 11a") normal modes of vibrations are assigned
assuming Cs point group symmetry. A complete vibrational analysis
is proposed based on predictions from ab-initio 3-21G calculations.
The vibrational assignments are supported by potential energy
distribution (PED) calculations.
