A series of β-diketones and alkenes have been examined by matrix isolation Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy. The matrix experiment readily detects the presence of extensive keto-enol tautomerization in selected β-diketones. Certain absorption bands in the IR could be used to estimate the extent of the tautomerization. The data gathered on the alkenes found their absorption bands to occur in the same regions (±5 cm−1) as those found for VP and SS phases. Minimal nearest-neighbor (aggregation) interactions were found. These results are in contrast to those found for aldehydes, ketones, and acids of similar chain lengths.
