A series of lactones and lactams have been examined by matrix isolation Fourier transform infrared spectrometry. The values for the carbonyl absorption bands fall between those reported for the same compounds in the vapor phase and solid state. Multiple absorption bands are found in the region of carbonyl absorption for compounds examined under the matrix isolation phase. Ring strain has a dramatic effect on simplifying the complexity of the spectra. Little or no aggregation effects are observed for either the lactones or lactams under accepted operating parameters. The effects of substituents on these systems are comparable to those found in the vapor-phase and solid-state data.
