Abstract : Para-substituted pyridine-N-oxides and their titanium tetra-fluoride complexes have been studied in the infrared in the region 4000 - 33 cm(-1). Particular attention has been paid to shifts occurring in both the N-O and Ti-O stretching mode as a function of para-substituent. Correlation of both these vibrational modes with the substituent constant reveal that little, if any, back bonding occurs between the titanium atom and the ligands. (Author)
