A complete vibrational analysis has been carried out for some XY2Z2 type molecules using a revised set of symmetry coordinates and a set of molecular constants, viz. kinetic constants, potential constants, compliance constants, vibrational mean amplitudes, Coriolis coupling constants, and centrifugal distortion constants have been reported in the present investigation for the first time. The values of the major potential constants evaluated in the present work are in good agreement with the literature values.
