The title compounds were investigated by means of Linear Dichroism (LD) IR spectroscopy on samples partially aligned in uniaxially stretched low-density polyethylene and by density functional theory calculations. Satisfactory overall agreement between observed and calculated vibrational wavenumbers and IR intensities are obtained, allowing a fairly detailed assignment of the observed transitions in terms of individual nuclear motions.
