The infrared and Raman spectra of benzoyl chloride, benzoyl chloride-d5 and benzoyl bromide have been measured between 75-4000cm. Assignments for the fundamental modes of vibration are presented. In addition, the infrared spectra of methyl chloro-formate and methyl chloroformate-d3 are reported. It is found that the two compounds readily crystallize as oriented polycrystalline films when cooled in contact with cesium iodide windows. The polarized infrared spectra obtained with these films makes possible an improved vibrational assignment for the light compound and a good first assignment for the deuterium substituted analogue. The results are most consistent with a planar cis structure and there is no indication of the existence of a second conformer. No clear cases of crystal splitting are observed. Author
