Abstract : Spectral data for 19 sulfones, 8 sulfoxides, 5 sulfides, and 2 disulfides were recorded from 1/2000 to 1/250 cm and analyzed for spectrastructure correlations. The information obtained can be applied in the identification of these compounds. The spectra were found to be very rich in absorption frequencies, and would be useful for fingerprint characterization of these materials. Some new group frequencies, useful for diagnosing the presence of the sulfone group, have been found below 1/700 cm. Literature values for group frequencies for sulfones and sulfoxides above 1/700 cm are discussed and corrected. A number of additional effects such as conjugation, intermolecular association, and frequency relationships were investigated. (Author)
