The kinetics of radical heterolysis reactions, including rate constants for radical cation-anion contact ion pair formation, collapse of the contact pair back to the parent radical, and separation of the contact pair to a solvent-separated ion pair or free ions were obtained in several solvents for a beta-mesyloxy radical. Rate constants were determined(More)
[reaction: see text] A design for fast kinetic studies of electron transfer in radical anions is reported. alpha-Hydroxy radicals formed by 355 nm laser flash photolysis of alpha-phenacyl alcohols are deprotonated under basic conditions to give ketyl radical anions that serve as electron injectors in inter- and intramolecular electron-transfer reactions.(More)
