The electronic absorption spectra of some hydroxamic acid oxime derivatives and Schiff's base derivatives in polar (ethanol) and nonpolar (CCl<sub>4</sub>) solvents, as well as in some other organic solvents of different polarities, were investigated; the variation of absorbance with pH was utilized for the determination of pK<sub>a</sub> and Δ<i>G</i>* values. The important bands in the IR spectra as well as the main signals of the NMR spectra are also discussed in relation to the molecular structure.
