(1) The dipole moment of benzil was studied in three solvents and its temperature dependence was examined.
(2) The carbon-carbon bond of benzil is not a pure single bond and is probably a hybrid of single and double bonds. This is the result expected from Thiele’s old idea of conjugated system and also from the quantum mechanical resonance.
(3) The dipole moment of α-stilbene dichloride was also studied in benzene and carbon tetrachloride solution. The result was compared with that of ethylene dichloride.
