Anthralin: primary products of its redox reactions.

One-electron reduction significantly enhances the ability of anthralin, 1, to act as a hydrogen atom donor. On annealing of an MTHF glass in which the radical anion of anthralin, 1*-, is generated radiolytically, this species decays mainly by loss of H* to give the anthralyl anion, 2- . On the other hand, radicals formed on radiolysis of matrices that are… CONTINUE READING
