A General Method for the Localization of Electronic Transition Frequencies in Continuous Absorption Spectra

Abstract

THE more or less complete lack of vibrational structure in ultra-violet absorption spectra of polyatomic molecules has made it impossible to locate the frequency corresponding to the pure electronic transition. This has further been an obstacle to the semi-empirical development of quantum mechanical theories concerning the electronic structure of complex… (More)
