Chemically induced Parkinson's disease. II: Intermediates in the oxidation and reduction reactions of the 1-methyl-4-phenyl-2,3-dihydropyridinium ion and its deprotonated form.

Abstract

The one-electron reduction product of 1-methyl-4-phenyl-2,3-dihydropyridinium ion has been generated by pulse radiolysis and its absorption spectrum recorded. This radical was found to decay by second-order kinetics (2k = 9.5 x 10(8) M-1 s-1) to 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine and 1-methyl-4-phenyl-2,3-dihydropyridinium ion. Reactions of the… (More)
