The IR spectra in the range of 4000-100 cm-1 of the following rare-earth formates were studied: Ce(HCOO)3, Pr(HCOO)3, Nd(HCOO)3, Nd(HCOO)3, Sm(HCOO)3, Eu(HCOO)3 and Gd(HCOO)3. The influence of the metal ion on the metal-oxygen stretching frequencies has been investigated. A normal coordinate analysis of the crystal as a whole will be given elsewhere as well as the potential energy distribution among the force constants for each lattice vibration for these rare-earth formates.
