Raman spectra of three forms of dithizone are presented. Significant structural changes are indicated in the Raman spectra when a proton is added or lost from neutral dithizone (H2Dz) to form the corresponding conjugate acid of dithizone (H3Dz+) and the dithizone anion (HDz−), respectively. These spectral changes are correlated with the structures previously proposed for these species.
