This investigation is concerned chiefly with the study of substituted diphenyls; the remaining substances dealt with are those necessary to make the position more clear where a lack of agreement in existing data renders their interpretation difficult. The first molecular polarisation measurements on diphenyl and its derivatives were published in 1928. There had been considerable controversy concerning the structure of the diphenyl molecule and it was thought that a study of the molecular polarisations of 4,4'-disubstituted diphenyls would help to clarify the situation. This was one of the earliest attempts at aiding the elucidation of molecular structure by dipole moment studies and, the method being in its early stages of development, the results were not as conclusive as was hoped.
