In this work, the experimental and theoretical spectra of 3-chloro-4-fluoro benzonitrile (3C4FBN) were studied. The Fourier transform infrared and Fourier transform Raman spectra of 3C4FBN were recorded in the solid phase. The optimized geometry was calculated by HF and B3LYP methods with 6-311++G(d,p) basis set. The harmonic-vibrational frequencies, infrared intensities and Raman scattering activities of the title compound were performed at and HF/B3LYP/6-311++G(d,p) level of theories. The scaled theoretical wave number showed very good agreement with the experimental values. The thermodynamic functions of the title compound was also performed at HF/6-31G(d,p) and B3LYP/6-311++G(d,p) level of theories. A detailed interpretation of the infrared and Raman spectra of 3C4FBN was reported. The theoretical spectrograms for FT-IR and FT-Raman spectra of the title molecule have been constructed.
