This research accomplished under this grant focused on intermolecular interaction and reaction dynamics of several monomeric as well as polymeric systems. Specifically the following research areas were investigated 1 Vibrational relaxation in organic solids. This study was necessitated from a need to formulate conditions under which a selective vibrational as well as a phonon excitation could be used to produce novel products by state selected chemistry 2 Phonon spectroscopy of reactions in solids. This novel method was used to determine the mechanism of reactions and the role of phonons in reactivity of solids 3 Raman phonon study of pharmaceutical solids in relation to their bioavailability. The method of Raman phonon spectroscopy was introduced as a convenient method to study various solid state forms of a given drug and their physical and chemical stabilities 4 Structure and dynamics of the conducting complex Benzophenone9 KI2 I7 CHCl3. Some preliminary work was done on this novel group of conducting materials and 5 Phonon spectroscopy of polymeric alloy. This new method was introduced to determine the molecular homogeneities of polymer blends. Author
