Photoreduction of 2,6-di-tert-butyl-1,4-benzoquinone by aliphatic tertiary amines

  • M. V. Serdobov
Brief Communications


The photoreduction of 2,6-di-tert-butyl-1,4-benzoquinone by tertiary aliphatic amines proceeds in donor-acceptor complexes of 1∶1 and 1∶2 composition. The radical pairs that are obtained by the photolysis of these systems in glassy solutions at 77°K are formed by neutral radicals.
