The Fourier transform (FT) Raman spectrum of poly (p-phenylene terephthalamide) (Kevlar-49) is reported. Additional bands, not observed in the conventional Raman spectrum, have been assigned. The changes to the FT-Raman spectrum of Kevlar due to the presence of water have also been examined. As a consequence of the intensity changes to certain Raman modes in this preliminary study, it is postulated that water molecules form liquid-like clusters between the crystallite regions of Kevlar fibres. © 1995 Springer-Verlag.
