Recent developments of nonlinear spectroscopy in liquids are reviewed. Especially, off-resonant fifth and seventh order nonlinear techniques are discussed in light of their application to the studies of microscopic dynamics. Vibrational echo experiments and overtone vibrational dephasing spectroscopy are examples of the higher order nonlinear spectroscopy.
