Spectral reflectance measurements show that the concept of the effect of solvents on the electronic absorption spectra of carbonyl compounds in various solvents as interpreted by polarization theory can be extended into model solid-solid systems, and that slow interaction between a powdered solid and an active adsorbent permits the detection of spectral changes which may be used for kinetic studies of the process of adsorption.
