Communication 41. Electrochemical reduction of certain alicyclic azines in dimethylformamide

  • 34 Accesses


The mechanisms of the electrochemical reduction of azines of acetaldehyde, acetophenone, benzophenone, and fluorenone in DMFA were discussed. It was shown by the ESR method that the dianion of fluorenone gives an electron to the initial molecule in solution, with the formation of two radical particles.
