Electrochemical generation and reactivity of free radical redox intermediates from ortho- and meta-nitro substituted 1,4-dihydropyridines.


This paper reports a comprehensive study by cyclic voltammetry on the electrochemical characteristics and the reactivity of the one-electron reduction product from a series of nitro aryl 1,4-dihydropyridines in mixed and aprotic media. In addition, the effects of 1,4-DHP on the oxygen consumption of T. cruzi epimastigotes are reported. One-electron… (More)
