Four cyano groups have been substituted on the aromatic ring of p-hydroquinone (2,3,5,6-tetracyanohydroquinone) in order to study the enhanced photoacidity of this molecule. The acid-base equilibria have been studied using absorption (for ground state pKa) and fluorescence (excited state pKa) spectra. Three distinct species (neutral, anionic and dianionic(More)
