A hydrogen-bonded complex was successfully isolated as crystals from the anthranol/anthroxyl pair in the self-exchange proton-coupled electron transfer (PCET) reaction. The anthroxyl radical was stabilized by the introduction of a 9-anthryl group at the carbon atom at the 10-position. The hydrogen-bonded complex with anthranol self-assembled by π-π stacking to form a one-dimensional chain in the crystal. The conformation around the hydrogen bond was similar to that of the theoretically… CONTINUE READING
