The results of vibrational echo correlation spectroscopy with full phase information were used to examine aspects of the hydrogen bond dynamics of methanol-OD in CCl4. By using extremely short pulses, it was possible to excite the entire very broad hydroxyl-stretching band including the 1-2 transition. Vibrational echo correlation spectroscopy combined with detailed calculations made it possible to explicate the population dynamics of hydrogen bond evolution with considerable clarity and detail.
