We present Raman spectra of misfit layer (PbS)(1.14)NbS2 nanotubes and lead intercalated NbS2 nanotubes. They represent interesting model systems to investigate the nature of interlayer interaction in layered materials. A direct correlation to the Raman modes of the parent 2H-NbS2 compound exists, but some modes are seen drastically upshifted in frequency in the misfit layer and intercalated compound while others remain almost unchanged. On the basis of the Raman spectroscopic investigations and with the help of supporting calculations we examine different interlayer bonding mechanisms and contribute to the discussion as to why these frequency shifts occur.
