When the quinone, vitamin K1 (VK1), is electrochemically reduced in aqueous-acetonitrile solutions (CH3CN with 7.22 M H2O), it undergoes a two-electron reduction to form the dianion that is hydrogen-bonded with water [VK1(H2O)y(2–)]. EPR and voltammetry experiments have shown that the persistent existence of the semiquinone anion radical (also(More)
The phenol, α-tocopherol, can be electrochemically oxidised in a -2e(-)/-H(+) process to form a diamagnetic cation that is long-lived in dry organic solvents such as acetonitrile and dichloromethane, but in the presence of water quickly reacts to form a hemiketal. Variable scan rate cyclic voltammetry experiments in acetonitrile with carefully controlled(More)
