Photolyses of 2-nitrobenzyl methyl ether and 2-nitrotoluene with 254 nm light have been investigated in Ar and N2 matrices at 12 K, and have been found to give o-quinonoid aci-nitro species as the primary photoproducts, along with other products. The o-quinonoid species have UV absorptions at relatively long wavelengths (λmax at 385–430 nm) and undergo facile secondary photolysis when irradiated in these absorption bands. By means of this selective photolysis, fairly complete IR spectra of the… CONTINUE READING
