In this paper, the experimental and theoretical vibrational frequencies of a potential bioactive pyrimidine derivative molecule named 2-benzylsulfanyl-4-pentyl-6-(phenylsulfanyl)pyrimidine-5-carbonitrile has been investigated. The experimental FT-IR and Laser-Raman spectra of the studied molecule are in the region (4000-400 cm(-1)) and (4000-100 cm(-1)), respectively, in gas phase. The vibrational modes and optimized ideal structure parameters(bond lengths, bond angles and selected dihedral angles) were calculated by using DFT/B3LYP, DFT/BHandHLYP and DFT/PBE1PBE methods with 6-311++G(d,p) basis set. The theoretical mode assignments have been obtained by using potential energy distribution (PED) with the VEDA4 software program. Additionally, infrared and Raman intensities, the highest occupied molecular orbital (HOMO), the lowest unoccupied molecular orbital (LUMO) energies and their clouds, and other related molecular properties were calculated and evaluated. The proton (H-1) and carbon-13 (C-13) nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) chemical shifts have been investigated for the title molecule, both experimentally (in DMSO-d(6)) and theoretically (in vacuum and DMSO). The thermodynamic properties of the tile compound have been investigated using the mentioned theoretical computational methods. The results revealed that there isgood agreement between experimental and theoretical results and these results have supported the related literature.
