The absorption spectra of the vapors of twelve alcohols and of nitric acid have been investigated by photographic methods in the region lambdalambda9450–9850. In each case a strong harmonic band of the O[Single Bond]H vibration was found. In the primary alcohols and in o-chlor phenol the O[Single Bond]H vibration was found to split into two components, a possible explanation for which is briefly discussed. In the bands of certain other substances a considerable complexity of structure was observed which is attributed either to a free rotation or a torsional vibration of the hydroxyl hydrogen with respect to the remainder of the molecule. Systematic shifts in the frequency of the O[Single Bond]H vibration with changes in the structure of the alcohol molecule were found.
