Monomeric OH Stretching Frequencies in Monohalogenated Monocarboxylic Acids

Volume 25, Number 4 (Aug. 1971) Page 497-498

In a recent publication from these laboratories we discussed spectra-structure correlations for pure monohalogenated monocarboxylic acids and noted that the bonded OH stretching vibration appeared to undergo a frequency shift in certain of the compounds studied. The extreme broadness of these absorption bands prevents accurate peak frequency measurements. We have now measured the frequencies of the monomeric OH stretching frequencies of these compounds in carbon tetrachloride solution, along with those of a few unsubstituted acids for comparison, and report the results here.
