The FT-IR, FT-Raman and FT-NMR spectra of the compound 4-(4-Chlorophenyl)-1H-imidazole (4-ClPI) was recorded and analyzed. Density functional method has been used to compute optimized geometry, vibrational wavenumbers and NMR spectra of the 4-ClPI. Only one tautomeric form was found most stable by using B3LYP functional with the 6-311++G(d,p) as basis sets. The detailed interpretation of the vibrational spectra was carried out with the aid of total energy distribution (TED) following the scaled quantum mechanical force field methodology.
