In this study the vibrational spectra of monomeric Zn(L)(2)X(2) (X = Cl and Br; L = C(4)H(5)N(3) = 2APM, 2-aminopyrimidine) compounds are reported and discussed. Full assignment of the spectra is presented and the analysis of the experimental data is supported by DFT calculations performed with B3LYP functional and the 6-311++G(d,p) basis set. The FT-IR (400-4000 cm(-1)) and Raman (100-3200 cm(-1)) spectra of compounds are recorded and compared with that of the calculated spectra. Anharmonic corrections to the harmonic wavenumbers are done with the same method and level of theory. The coordination effects on vibrational wavenumbers of 2APM are discussed in detail by comparing the spectra of free and coordinated 2APMs.
