The product of the Asinger reaction between elemental sulfur, n-butylamine and acetophenone is an unusual compound (1) that contains a CS7. In this paper, we have obtained vibrational spectra by a combination of Raman, infrared and inelastic neutron scattering spectroscopies. We present a complete assignment of the spectra based on periodic density functional theory.
