The interaction of dioxane vapor with monolayer and multilayers of chlorophyll has been studied using electronic and infrared spectroscopies. Our results indicate the formation of a complex implying the oxygene of the dioxane molecules with the magnesiums of adjacent chlorophyll molecules. These results are consistent with the molecular orbital calculations, using the "free electron network" method done by Le Brech, Leblanc and Antippa [Chem. Phys. Letters 26 (1974) 37-44].
