THE Raman spectrum of carbon disulphide has been determined by a number of observers (Gavesan and Venkateswaran, NATURE, 124, 57; 1929; Petrikaln and Hochberg, Zeit. phys. Chem., B. 3, 217; 1929; and by Schaefer, Matossi, and Anderhold, Phys. Zeit., 30, 584; 1929). In all cases an intense line displaced by 654–658 cm.−1 was observed, together with a weak line corresponding to 795–807 cm.−1. The spectrum is of considerable interest, as it has been impossible up to the present to reconcile it with the observed infrared spectrum as determined by Coblentz.
