Enthalpies of sublimation of acridine, 9-acridinamine, N-methyl-9-acridinamine, 10-methyl-9-acridinimine, N,N-dimethyl-9-acridinamine
and N-methyl-10-methyl-9-acridinimine were determined by fitting to thermogravimetric curves with the Clausius-Clapeyron relationship.
These values compare well with crystal lattice energies predicted theoretically as the sum of electrostatic, dispersive and
repulsive interactions. Partial charges for these calculations were obtained on an ab initio level, while atomic parameters
were taken from literature.
