The electron-donating strengths of some ketimines have been investigated via the formation of charge transfer complexes with iodine as electron-acceptor. Two types of ketimines were chosen as electron-donors, namely, the =N– unsubstituted as well as the =N– substituted ketimines. With the first type of donors the “n” charge transfer complex was obtained whereas with the second type the “π” charge transfer complexes were obtained. The equilibrium constants were computed for the different types of complexes. An attempt is made to estimate the ionization potentials of the donors from the position of the charge transfer band characteristic of the specific complex.
