N H H O prevents DNA replication Ultraviolet Spectroscopy The absorption of a 171-nm photon excites an electron from the p bonding MO of ethylene to the p* antibonding MO.

Conjugated Dienes Absorb Energy in UV Region UV Spectrum of Isoprene max = 222 nm max (nm) Conjugation lowers the energy differences between the HOMO and LUMO energy levels, and so conjugated dienes absorb at longer wavelengths than isolated dienes,

and trienes absorb at longer wavelengths than dienes, etc. Alkyl group substitution on double bonds also causes absorption to occur at longer wavelengths. max = 217nm max = 232nm 217 220 223
