    • Abstract


      Substituent induced13C NMR chemical shifts of side chain carbonyl carbons of several 4-substituted 1-naphthamides have been measured in DMSO-d6 solvent. Analysis of the substituent induced chemical shifts by the DSP equation gave the regression equation. Both {ie207-1} and {ie207-2} values were negative. The negative sign on {ie207-3} term indicates the operation of a reverse substituent effect and that π-polarisation is the important mechanism for the transmission of substituent effects by inductive effect. Theperi-hydrogen interaction in naphthamides forces the amide group out of the plane of the naphthalene ring.
