A total of 19 luminous infrared galaxy mergers, with L_(IR) ≳ 210^(11) L_⊙, for H_0 = 75 km s^(-1) Mpc^(-1), have been observed in the H i line at Nançay and four of them were observed at Arecibo as well. Of these 19, ten had not been observed before. Six were clearly detected, one of which for the first time. The objective was to statistically sample the H i gas mass in luminous infrared mergers along a starburst merger sequence where the molecular CO gas content is already known. We also searched the literature for H i data and compared these with our observations.
