The various instrumental factors which affect both peak and integrated Raman band intensities in liquids are discussed. These factors include the refractive index, color, and temperature of the sample; slit function and spectral sensitivity of the spectrophotometer; and the convergence and line width of the exciting radiation. Procedures for applying corrections for these factors relative to the 459 cm-1. band of carbon tetrachloride are presented. These considerations will allow good relative band areas to be obtained and will facilitate the interchangability of peak intensity data between different laboratories.
