In the present study, as a result of detailed conformational search of the 7-Ethoxycoumarin, four different conformers of (7EC) have been obtained. The FT-IR and Raman spectra of 7EC were recorded in the region 4000-400 cm(-1) and 3500-50 cm(-1), respectively. Vibrational frequences of the title compound were calculated by B3LYP method using 6-311++G(d,p) basis sets. The calculated vibrational frequences were analyzed and compared with experimental results. Characteristic vibrational bands of the pyrone ring, methylene and CO groups have been identified.
