  1. 1.

    From the molar Cotton-Mouton constants for acetone and cyclohexanone, we determined the magnetic susceptibility tensor for the C=O bond, which is paramagnetic in the plane of the carbonyl and diamagnetic in the perpendicular direction.

  2. 2.

    Within the framework of the tensor additive scheme, we calculated the theoretical molar Cotton-Mouton constants (which agree with experimental data) for aryl-containing aldehydes and ketones. This confirms the additive nature of the molecular magnetic susceptibility tensor for the studied compounds.
