The bands with Iv 〈 13 eV in the photoelectron spectra of quinoline (IX), isoquinoline (X), cinnoline (XI), quinazoline (XII), and quinoxaline (XIII) have been reassigned in a way consistent with the assignment proposed for pyridine (II), the diazines (III, IV, V), s-triazine (VI), and 1,2,4,5-tetrazine (VII). The bands corresponding to the ejection of an electron from a π-orbital have been identified by a regression calculation based on a HMO perturbation treatment. It has been found that the combined through-space and through-bond interaction of the lone pairs in III, IV, V and in their corresponding benzologues XI, XII, XIII are the same within experimental error ( ±, 0.2 eV). Our assignment is also supported by an empirical correlation of the pKa, 1- values and the mean lone-pair ionization potentials of the azaderivatives I to XIII.
