The gas-phase infrared spectra of bromodifluoromethane, CHBrF2, have been examined at medium resolution in the range of 2009500cm1. The assignment of the absorptions in terms of fundamental, overtone, combination, and hot bands, assisted by quantum chemical calculations is consistent all over the region investigated. Accurate values of integrated band intensities have also been determined for the first time in the range of 5006000cm1. Structural and molecular spectroscopic properties have been calculated at high level of theory. The coupled cluster CCSD(T) method in conjunction with a hierarchical series of correlation consistent basis sets has been employed and extrapolation to complete basis set has been considered for the equilibrium geometry. Vibrational analysis based on the second order perturbation theory has been carried out with the ab initio anharmonic force constants calculated using the second order Møller–Plesset perturbation as well as coupled cluster [CCSD(T)] theory. A good agreement between the computed and the experimental data also including the integrated infrared band intensities has been obtained.
