Dr. Harold S. Choguill


The purpose of this investigation was to determine the ultraviolet absorption spectra of a group of iodinated phenols. The spectra were to be examined as a possible means of ascertaining 2 molecular structure, particularly regarding the position of the substituted iodine on the phenolic molecule . The absorption spectrum of the parent phenol of each of the iodinated products was also to be determined. Any information regarding the effect of iodine substitution, as shown by a comparison of spectra, would possibly serve as an aid in deciding questions of certain molecular properties. The Beer's law behavior of each of the iodinated phenols was also determined. Such information is of importance in quantitative analytical procedures.
