Spectrophotometric determination of association constant: Computer program STEP

Research output: Non-textual formDatasetResearch


Least-squares 'Systematic Trial-and-Error Procedure' (STEP) for spectrophotometric evaluation of association constant (equilibrium constant) K and molar absorption coefficient E for a 1:1 molecular complex, A + B = C, with error analysis according to Conrow et al. (1964). An analysis of the Charge Transfer (CT) complex formation of naphthalene and chloranil is provided as an example.
