The structural, thermal and vibrational properties of the molecular crystal 2-amine-1,3,4-thiadiazole (ATD) were investigated combining X-ray diffraction, infrared spectroscopy, Raman scattering (in solid and in solution) and thermal analysis as experimental techniques and first principle calculations based on density functional theory using PZ, BLYP in condensed-phase and B3LYP/cc-pVTZ in isolated molecule methods. The structural stability and phonon anharmonicity were also studied using Raman spectroscopy at different temperatures and hydrostatic pressures. A reasonable agreement was obtained between calculated and experimental results. The main difference between experimental and computed structural and vibrational spectra occurred in the intermolecular bond distance N-H center dot center dot center dot N and stretching modes of NH2. The vibrational spectra were interpreted and assigned based on group theory and functional group analysis assisted by theoretical results, which led to a more comprehensive knowledge about external and internal modes at different thermodynamic conditions. As temperature increases, it was observed the line-width increases and red-shifts, indicating a phonon anharmonicity without a temperature induced phase transition in the range 10-413 K. However, ATD crystal undergoes a phase transition in the temperature range 413-475 K, as indicated by thermal analysis curve and Raman spectra. Further-more, increasing pressure from ambient to 3.1 GPa, it was observed the splitting of the external Raman bands centered at 122 cm(-1) (at 0.2 GPa), 112 cm(-1) (1.1 GPa), 93 cm(-1) (2.4 GPa) in two components as well as the appearance of new band near 50 cm(-1) at 1.1 GPa, indicating a possible phase-transition. The blue-shift of the Raman bands was associated to anharmonicity of the interatomic potential caused by unit cell contraction. (C) 2017 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. (AU)
