Abstract:

Electrochemically modulated infra red spectroscopy of acrylonitrile adsorbed on a gold electrode in aqueous sulphuric acid shows potential - dependent unipolar absorption bands at 2130cm and 1520cm. These are ascribed to heavily red shifted C N- and CC stretches from acrylonitrile adsorbed flat on the surface by means of the pi-electron system. These bands are forbidden by the surface selection rule but are made visible by an Electrochemical Stark Effect.
