Abstract: Two new derivatives of 8-mercaptoquinoline have been synthesized: 5-phenyl- and 6-phenyl-8-mercaptoquinoline. Their electronic absorption spectra have been studied and ionization as well as distribution constants have been determined. At ionic strength 1 = 0.1 mol dm-3 and temperature 0 = 2O°C for 5-phenyl-8-mercaptoquinoline the values pKi = 1.97 and pK2 = 8.41 have been found, for 6-phenyl-8-mercaptoquinoline pKi = 2.01 and pK2 = 8.19 (the values found previously for 2-phenyl- and 4-phenyl-8-mercaptoquinoline were pKi = 1.41, pK2 = 8.00 and pKi, = 2.10, pK2 = 8.49, respectively). In the system chloroform—water at ionic strength 1 = 0.1 mol dm-3 and temperature 0 = = 20 °C the following distribution constants have been determined: for 5-phenyl-8-mercaptoquinoline 60 000 and for 6-phenyl-8-mercaptoquinoline 70 800 (the previously found values for 2-phenyl- and 4-phenyl-8-mercaptoquinoline were 470 000 and 78 000 respectively). The comparison with the previously investigated 8-mercaptoquinoline, 2-phenyl-, and 4-phenyl-8-mercaptoquinoline is drawn. It is shown that phenyl group in the 4th and 5th position to a large extent affects the p band of л—> л * electron transition while in the 2nd and 6th position it affects the ß band of  л—>л* electron transition causing the bathochromic and hyperchromic shift. Phenyl group in the 5th and 6th position in the molecule of 8-mercapto­quinoline decreases to some degree the basic properties of nitrogen atom and increases acidic properties of mercapto group, but in the 4th position it slightly increases basic properties of nitrogen atom and decreases acidic properties of mercapto group. In the 2nd position phenyl group considerably decreases basic properties of nitrogen atom and slightly decreases acidic properties of mercap­ to group; the latter fact can be explained by steric effects of this group.
