FT-IR and FT-Raman spectra of 2-[(4-chlorobenzyl)sulfanyl]-4-(2-methylpropyl)-6-[3-trifluoromethyl)-anilino]pyrimidine-5-carbonitrile were recorded and analyzed. The vibrational wave numbers were computed using DFT quantum chemical calculations. The data obtained from wave number calculations are used to assign vibrational bands obtained in infrared and Raman spectra. Potential energy distribution was done using GAR2PED program. The NH stretching wave number is red shifted by102 cm(-1) in IR from the computed wave number, which indicates the weakening of the NH bond. The geometrical parameters (DFT) of the title compound are in agreement with the XRD results. NBO analysis, HOMO-LUMO, first hyperpolarizability and molecular electrostatic potential results are also reported. From the MEP map it is evident that the negative electrostatic potential regions are mainly localized over the C N and CF3 groups and are possible sites for electrophilic attack and positive regions are localized around NH group, indicating possible sites for nucleophilic attack. The preliminary docking results suggest that the title compound might exhibit inhibitory activity against GPb and may act as a potential anti-diabetic compound. (C) 2014 Elsevier B.V.
