Paper Abstract

The stretching mode of OH-groups with proton donor function of an alcohol associating to open hydrogen-bonded dimers is investigated in the liquid phase. Spectral holes with frequency spacing of approximately equals 35 cm-1 in the fundamental OH-transition and of approximately equals 45 cm-1 in the excited state-absorption are determined. This gives strong evidence for combination tones with the bending vibration of the hydrogen bridge bond governing the dynamics and the shape of the proton donor OH-stretching band. The combination modes display additional relaxation channels for the excited OH-stretching mode resulting in a lifetime shortening from 8 ps (monomer) down to 3.6 ps (proton donor, 260 K).
