Influence of intermolecular hydrogen bonding upon the vibrational pattern in the low-frequency region was studied for 2-(2-hydroxyphenyl)-3-pyridynol a molecule which reveals both intra and intermolecular hydrogen bonds in the crystal phase. Combined use of IR and Raman spectroscopy and ab initio 6-31G** calculations for the isolated and water-complexed compound made it possible to find low frequency transitions corresponding to the vibrations of the water solvate.
