Reversible σ-dimerizations of persistent organic radical cations

Journal Article


Abstract


  • A class of well-defined reversible σ-dimerizations of 9,10-dialkoxyanthracene radical cations are presented. Yellow crystals of the σ-dimerized dication dissociate to purple solutions of monomeric radical cations in solution (see scheme). The identity and stability of radical cations were unequivocally confirmed, providing evidence for reversible σ-dimerizations of persistent radical cations of aromatic systems.
