A semiempirical molecular orbital theory which is known as extended H ckel theory is applied to explain the sweet taste mechanism of nitroaniline, 1-methoxy-4-nitroaniline, and 1-ethoxy-4-nitroaniline which has different sweetness respectively. In this paper, the assumption is made that the nitroaniline is coplanar. The relationship between charge density and sweetness has been calculated according to the geometrical rotation of the orthosubstitute of nitroanilines. It has been shown that the calculated results are consistent with the experimental order of the relative sweetness.
