Abstract

An experimental study was performed on the anomalous effects of solvent polarity and subsequent hydrogen-bonding intermolecular forces on the UV-Absorption Spectroscopy of the 2, 3, and 4 Cyanopyridine (CNP) isomers. Molecular orbital computations using the WebMO computational program with MOPAC and Gaussian engines are included to support the experimental results.
