Abstract

One electron Extended Hückel Molecular Orbital (EHMO) theory has been used to study the conformational geometry of five benzal-p-X-aniline (X = H, Me3, Cl, Br, Me3O) Schiff's bases. The electronic structure predicted by this method was used as a guide for a least squares resolution of the observed electronic (UV) spectra. The resultant resolved spectra are discussed in terms of correlations of band shifts with substituent properties.
