The 13C and 14N NMR spectra of 1M solutions of 1-(substituted phenyl)pyridinium salts (4-CH3, 4-OCH3, H, 4-Cl, 4-Br, 4-I, 3-NO2, 4-NO2, 2,4-(NO2)2 (the 13C NMR only)) have been measured in heavy water at 30 °C. The 13C and 14N chemical shifts, the 1J(CH) coupling constants, some 3J(CH) coupling constants, and values of half-widths Δ 1/2 of the 14N NMR signals are given. The 13C chemical shifts of C(4) correlate with the σ0 constants (δC(4) = (1.79 ± 0.097) σ0 + (147.67 ± 0.041)), whereas no correlation of the nitrogen chemical shifts with the σ constants has been found. The half-widths Δ 1/2 correlate with the σ0 constants (Δ 1/2 = (76.2 ± 4.9) σ0 + (106.4 ± 2.2)) except for 1-phenylpyridinium chloride.
