Vibrational modes are assigned to the Raman bands of 1- and 2-methylimidazole. Assignments are based on a review of the literature assignments of imidazole, 1-methylimidazole and 4(5)-methylimidazole supplemented by Raman depolarization studies of 1.0 M solutions of 1- and 2-methylimidazole. Raman shifts observed for N-deuteration of 2-methylimidazole are also considered.
