The self-association of 2- and 3-(acetylamino)pyridines in a condensed phase was investigated by conventional and linear-polarized IR spectroscopy. Interpretation of spectra of the monomer and associated forms was carried out by the reducing-difference procedure. Theoretical quantum chemical calculations at the B3LYP level of theory and with 6-31±G** basis set were performed in order to obtain the electronic structure and vibrational characteristics of both compounds.
