UV/Vis spectroscopic evaluation of 4-nitropyridine N-oxide as a solvatochromic indicator for the hydrogen-bond donor ability of solvents.

The potential of 4-nitropyridine N-oxide to act as a solvatochromic indicator of the hydrogen-bond donor ability of solvents has been evaluated. A linear free-energy relationship has been established that is predominantly dependent on the Kamlet-Taft a parameter of the solvent. In comparison to the...
