A benzene fragment HC3/DC3 is used as a model for benzene in a quasiclassical trajectory study of the intramolecular decay of the n=3 overtone. The calculated linewidth (fwhm) for the CH overtone is ≈ 4 cm-1 and that for CD <1 cm-1. This trajectory result for the n=3 CH overtone is in excellent agreement with experimental results for the n=3 overtone of rotationally cold C6H6.
