Temperature dependences of the frequencies for the Raman modes of v (NH2), v(s) (CH3), v(1) (HCOO-), vs (CNN) and IR mode of rho (NH2) are calculated in particular, for MHyMn close to the phase transition temperature (T-C = 220 K) in the family of compounds CH3NH2NH2 M(HCOO)(3), MHyM with M = Mn, Mg, Fe and Zn. By assuming Raman and infrared frequency as an order parameter, this calculation is performed from the molecular field theory by using the experimental data from the literature. We also calculate the damping constant (FWHM) from the order parameter (Raman and IR frequency of those modes) by using the pseudospin (MHy(+) cations)-phonon coupled model (PS) and the energy-fluctuation model (EF) for methylhydrazinium metal formate frameworks. Expressions of the damping constant from both models are fitted to the observed FWHM data for the Raman and infrared modes studied for these metal formates. Our results show that the anomalous behaviour of the Raman and IR frequencies of those modes, except the v(S)(CH3) Raman mode which are associated with the phase transition can be described adequately by the molecular field theory in MHyM, as observed experimentally. Also, the damping constant calculated from the PS and EF models can explain the observed FWHM of those Raman and IR modes studied in methylhydrazinium metal formate frameworks.
