2-Arylindenones, Dimerization, NMR Spectra
Proton and C-13 NMR spectral studies of 2-p-nitrophenylindenone indicate that some polarization is present in this compound which would explain its stability to the dimerization that is observed with 2-phenylindenone. Assignment of frequencies in these spectra was based on intensities of signal and comparison with the spectra of 2-p-nitrophenyl-3-phenyl-2-propenenitrile, 2,3-diphenylindenone and the sodium methoxide addition products of 2-p-nitrophenylindenone and 2-p-nitrophenyl-3-phenyl-2-propenenitrile.
