Radical Cations of Conjugated Cyclic Disulfides

Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSA, volume 197)


Persistent radical cations of heterocycles containing two conjugated sulfur atoms are readily detected by ESR spectroscopy. These systems are often more persistent than their acyclic analogues because scission of a sulfur-sulfur bond does not lead to irreversible decomposition. The cation radicals formed from 1–10 will be discussed in terms of their formation, conformations and ESR spectroscopy.
