Electric Dipole Moments of Some Styrenes

Article metrics


THE electric dipole moments, in benzene solution at 25° C., of the following nuclear methylated styrenes have been measured : These values are approximately corrected for atom polarization. Otto and Wenzke1 report a value of 0.63 D for (I). The others appear not to have been examined.
