The infrared spectra in the region of fundamental C=O stretching vibrations in tetrachloromethane and chloroform were measured for 59 maleinimide derivatives. A linear correlation between the wavenumbers of symmetric and antisymmetric C=O stretching vibrations was found for a series of 102 experimental data obtained in both solvents. The slope of the νs(C=O) vs νas(C=O) dependence as well as the degree of the vibrational coupling in imide system were discussed and compared with those for analogical five-membered cyclic 1,3-diketones.
