- Using the n-PDQ model, in which the solvent is simulated by several point dipoles and quadrupoles, we have estimated the shift of the UV bands of pyridine N-oxide (PyO), its cationic acid (PyOH⁺), and homoconjugated cation (PyOHPyO⁺) caused by the solvent (acetonitrile). We have calculated the UV spectra of both unsolvated and solvated species by the CNDO/S-CI and CNDO/S-CI-nPDQ method, respectively. We have found that all the bands of all the species under study are blue-shifted on solvation. The most significant is the shift of the long-wave π→π* bands of pyridine N-oxide.
