Vibrational spectroscopic studies in the carboxylic acid stretching frequency region of a salicylic acid derivative reveal a frequency splitting upon deuteration. Several possibilities for this anomalous result are presented and the implication of these results on the use of deuteration shifts in order to make spectroscopic assignments are considered.
