Complexes of tertiary amines with hindered quinones

  • 31 Accesses


The generation of radical pairs by low-temperature photolysis of solutions of sterically hindered quinones in aliphatic amines has been studied by ESR. The process of stabilization of radical pairs is related to molecular complexes between amines and quinones in solution.
