Electron Affinities of Quinones : Correlation of One-electron Redox Potentials with Quantum-mechanical Calculation


IN 1949, Maccoll1 showed that a linear relationship existed between the energy of the lowest unoccupied molecular orbitals of aromatic hydrocarbons (their electron affinities) and their polarographic half-wave potentials (E½). This relationship was further discussed and extended by Pullman et al.2 and Hoijtink3, although it was not always appreciated at… (More)
