Since vibrational frequency shifts in liquids, produced by solvents and/or high liquid densities, are relatively small, precision equipment and techniques must be used. Design and operation of modified equipment, including a long path grating monochromator, a pressuring system and cells for pressures up to 5000–10000 atm are described. A static measurement technique, involving precise positioning of the grating and read out of the transmittance on a digital voltmeter, followed by computer processing of the series of points which describe the absorption peak to determine the ν<sub>0</sub>, are also described. Experimental data on <i>C=C</i> vibration on <i>cis</i>-pentene-2 are presented to illustrate results.
