Abstract

Though the red to blue colors produced by the reaction of Ferric chloride with phenols have long been used as a qualitative test for these compounds, no work has been published that has looked into the nature of the electronic transitions in the visible region. It is the purpose of this paper and the experimentation to determine the source of the transition responsible for the colors of ferric chloride-phenol complexes, and to qualitatively account for the shifts in wavelength of the primary absorption bands due to the effects of the substituent on each phenol.
