The infrared absorption intensities of torsion-rotation transitions were theoretically derived on the basis of torsion-rotation interactions of molecules with symmetric internal rotor. The theoretical intensities depend upon molecular structure parameters and molecular dipole moment. Implications of the present theory are discussed on absolute intensities, orientations of dipole transition moment, band types (A, B, or C), and deuteration effects on absorption intensities of methyl torsional transitions. For propylene oxide and propylene sulfide, the far infrared spectra of the gaseous state were measured, and the experimental absorption intensities of methyl torsional vibrations were compared with theoretical intensities.
