The absorption spectrum of cyanogen gas has been investigated in the ultraviolet down to λ1800. In the region λλ2300-1820 more than one hundred bands were found which apparently belong to one system with origin probably at 44900 cm^-1. The bands have a pronounced tendency to appear as doublets. The more intense ones are usually broad with edges toward the violet, but many line-like structures appear which are probably Q branches. Some regularities in the spectrum are pointed out and the relation of the ultraviolet spectrum to the infrared absorption and Raman spectrum is briefly discussed.
