Spectroscopic investigation of 5-chloro-2-pyridone has been carried out in the temperature range 77–300 K. At room temperature the $^{35}Cl NQR$ spectrum shows a single line at 35.618 MHz, but at 250.7 K two lines appear at 35.850 MHz and 35.840 MHz respectively indicating the presence of a phase transition. IR, far-IR, laser Raman and dielectric measurements have been carried out to investigate the phase transition further. Low temperature IR studies show splitting of \nu(C---Cl), \beta(N---H) and \nu(C=O) bands at $T_c$. Dielectric measurements show a small, but finite, change in the value of the dielectric constant around $T_c$. Raman spectra at different temperatures support the existence of a new phase, as shown by the appearance of a new band at 81 cm−1, the frequency of which changes slowly as $T_c$ is approached and which disappears at $T_c$. The temperature dependence of the NQR frequencies has been analysed using Bayer Kushida and Brown equations toevaluate the torsional frequencies.
