dc.description.abstractThe work of $Whiffen^{1}$ on halobenzenes has shown that, of the 30 fundamental modes of vibration for a monosubstituted phenyl ring, 24 vibrations are essentially independent of the substitutent attached to the ring. The other six are considered as “X-sensitive” vibrations. Three of the vibrations, labelled the q-, r-, and t-vibrations, have been reported by various authors as being due to the phenyl-X stretching vibration or to some mixture of the phenyl-X stretching vibration and a ring mode. This study of the vibrational spectra of monosubstituted phenyl molecules for elements of Groups IVA through VIIA, i.e., (phenyl) n X, n = 4, 3, 2, or 1, indicated that the t-vibration should indeed correspond to the phenyl-X stretching mode. Gordy’s $Rule^{2}$ and the harmonic oscillator approximation were applied to the t-vibration for these phenyl compounds. It was found that the general form of the Gordy equation can be used for a particular value of n, except for those molecules formed from the first row elements. However, the constants a and b of the Gordy equation varied with n and were different from those given by Gordy. The calculation of the bond order of the phenyl-X bond and the significance of the results of this study will be considered.en_US
