THE PHOTO-EC MECHANISM - REDUCTION OF TERT-BUTYL BROMIDE BY EXCITED-STATE TETRACHLOROBENZOQUINONE RADICAL-ANION

Abstract:

The mediated reduction of t-butyl bromide by the photochemically excited radical anion of tetrachlorobenzoquinone (TCBQ) is studied in acetonitrile solution using the channel electrode. The reduction of TCBQ in the dark is a reversible one-electron process which forms the corresponding stable radical anion. Upon photoexcitation of the radical anion in the presence of t-butyl bromide, photocurrents are observed and the electrode process is shown to have the characteristics of an EC′ mechanism:...
