The results of Raman spectroscopy research of aqueous ethanol solutions with various mixing ratios are presented. The analysis of the behavior of Raman spectra with changes in ethanol concentration from 0 to pure ethanol is given. The analysis of contour of stretching OH-band provided information about changes in hydrogen bonding along with increases in ethanol concentration. Obtained results showed that the maximum strength of H-bonding in aqueous ethanol solution corresponded to an ethanol concentration of 15...20 % w/w. The observed strengthening of H-bonding strongly supports the hypothesis of clathrate-like structures. These results were supported by application of MCR-ALS method.
