Abstract

Abstract The librational motions of water molecules in single crystals of Ba(ClO 3) 2.H 2O and K 2C 2O 4.H 2O are studied by the technique of neutron scattering. The assignments of the observed peaks in the two cases are discussed with reference to features affecting the intensity, namely, the orientation of the crystal and the polarisation vector of the librational motions. Unambiguous assignments have been made for the rocking modes of vibration.
