Electronic spectra of paramethoxy benzyl alcohol and parachloro benzyl cyanide
The electronic absorption spectra of paramethoxy benzyl alcohol (pmba) and parachloro benzyl cyanide (pcbc) are described. The broad features of the spectra of the molecules are consistent with allowed transition forC 2v symmetry. However, the solid state and glass matrix spectra of pmba at 77K indicate possible deviation from planarity in the structure of the molecule. In pcbc, it is pointed out that intensity borrowing may be responsible for the large intensity of the vibrationally-induced part of the spectra, in which non-totally symmetric vibrations are excited.
