    The molecular geometry, the normal mode frequencies and corresponding vibrational assignments, (1)H and (13)C NMR chemical shift values of 8-hydroxy-1-methylquinolinium iodide monohydrate [(C(10)H(10)NO)(+)I(-)H(2)O] in the ground state were performed by HF and B3LYP levels of theory using the LanL2DZ basis set. The optimized bond lengths and bond angles are in good agreement with the X-ray data. The vibrational spectra of the title compound which is calculated by HF and DFT methods, reproduces vibrational wave numbers and intensities with an accuracy which allows reliable vibrational assignments. The title compound [(C(10)H(10)NO)(+)I(-)H(2)O] have been studied theoretically in the 4, 000-200 cm(-1) region and the assignment of all the observed bands were made. The analysis of the infrared spectra indicates that there are some structure-spectra correlations. These methods are proposed as a tool to be applied in the structural characterization of 8-hydroxy-1-methylquinolinium iodide monohydrate [(C(10)H(10)NO)(+)I(-)H(2)O], and thus providing useful support in the interpretation of experimental NMR data.
