The structure of the radical-cations of 1-alkyladamantanes (alkyl = Me, Et, i-Pr, t-Bu) was investigated by computational methods (BLYP and MP2) in 6-316* basis set. It was shown that the adiabatic ionization potentials decrease significantly in this series. The competition between C—H and C—C fragmentation of the radical-cations was investigated both theoretically and experimentally in the presence of outer-sphere and electrophilic oxidants.
