Abstract

The dipole moment of styrene, calculated from eighteen solutions ranging in weight fraction from 0 - 100%, was found to be 0.181 D. The method and results of the measurement were compared to the method and results of Petro and Smyth for the same compound. It was concluded that the atomic polarization in styrene in small, and thus is taken into account by the measurement of the molar refraction at the sodium D line. It was further proposed that the relatively large dipole moments of trans-p, βdinitrostyrene and trans-p, βdicyano-styrene may be due, at least in part, to abnormally large atomic polarizations.
