Electron transfer from the hydroxide ion to a carbon-carbon triple bond Halliwell, Janet Elizabeth
A one-electron transfer from the hydroxide ion to the electron acceptor p-nitrotolan was studied in aqueous dimethylsulfoxide by means of visible spectroscopy and electron spin resonance techniques. The possibility of initial nucleophilic attack followed by electron transfer from the carbanion so formed was eliminated. The analogous reaction of methoxide with p-nitrotolan was briefly examined.
