Our present work reports the IR spectra of amino substituted salicylic acids recorded by FTIR spectro-meter and also simulated theoretically. The simulation was performed using GF matrix and AM1, PM3, DFT method. In this work, the following steps were taken: optimizing the geometry, computing the IR spectra and comparing it with experimental spectra. Assuming Cs point symmetry, vibrational assign-ments for the observed frequencies have been proposed. The spectra exhibit distinct features originating from low frequency vibrational modes caused by intra-molecular motion.

Key words: o-amino salicylic acid, m-amino salicylic acid, p-amino salicylic acid, FTIR spectra, vibrational spectra, AM1, PM3, DFT, G-F Matrix.
