Studies were carried out, for the first time, to investigate the charge-transfer reactions of ganciclovir as n-electron donor with the sigma-acceptor iodine and various pi-acceptors: 7,7,8,8-tetracyanoquinodimethane; tetracyanoethylene; 2,3-dichloro-5,6-dicyano-1,4-benzoquinone; p-chloranilic acid; 2,3,5,6-tetrabromo-1,4-benzoquinone; 2,3,5,6-tetrachloro-1,4-benzoquinone and 2,4,7-trinitro-9-fluorenone. The formation of the colored charge-transfer complexes was utilized in the development of… CONTINUE READING
