26. Nitrile IR Intensities Calibrate Electric Fields

Nitriles are almost ideal electric field probes when utilizing the vibrational Stark effect frequency shift. Almost, because they suffer from the additional H-bonding shift. Here, we show that the IR Intensity does not suffer from such effect and is the true ideal electric field strength indicator.
