Electrochemical ESR and voltammetric studies of lithium ion pairing with electrogenerated 9,10-anthraquinone radical anions either free in acetonitrile solution or covalently bound to multiwalled carbon nanotubes.
The influence of lithium ion pairing on the voltammetric reduction of anthraquinone in acetonitrile is reported. On gold electrodes, the single electron reduction generates a radical anion which forms a complex with lithium cations from the electrolyte. In situ ESR studies support this finding, and signal intensity measurements are used to estimate a value for the complexation equilibrium constant. Values calculated were of the of the order of 6000 mol(-1) dm3. Potential shift measurements an...Expand abstract
