This work describes studies of the electron-promoted Cope cyclization of 2,5-phenyl-1,5-hexadiene radical anions in a flowing afterglow triple quadrupole mass spectrometer. The electronic properties of the hexadienes have been systematically modified by using aromatic substituents at the 2- and 5-positions of the hexedienes, including those with nitro… CONTINUE READING
