The electronic and steric effects of a substituent X in typical acetyl (CH3COX) and benzoyl (PhCOX) systems have been investigated experimentally (ultraviolet spectra) and theoretically (LCAO-MO calculations). The good semiquantitative agreement between calculated and observed results (based on a study of twenty-six different carbonyl derivatives) allows some general conclusions to be drawn concerning the effects of substituents on the electronic transitions.
