The molecular structure, natural bond orbital (NBO) analysis and vibrational studies of Sudan Red G {(SRG), [1-(2-methoxyphenylazo)-2-naphthol]} have been investigated using Density Functional Theory (DFT) calculations. To investigate the tautomeric stability, optimisation calculations at the Hartree-Fock (HF) and DFT/B3LYP levels were performed for the azo (OH) and hydrazo (NH) forms of the title compound. FT-IR, FT-Raman and electronic absorption spectra of SRG have recorded and analysed. We have compared the calculated IR and Raman wavenumbers with the observed data.
