Changes of electronic charge distribution following the lowest singlet n-π* transitions of benzaldehyde, benzamide, benzoic acid, the phthalaldehydes, pyridine, and the diazines have been examined using the CNDO-S/CI method. A Singlet n-π* transition is found as a general rule to direct electronic charges to the para position of the atom in the ring that carries the lone pair or to which the substituent carrying the lone pair is attached.
