Long-Lived Radical Cations as Model Compounds for the Reactive One-Electron Oxidation Product of Vitamin E

Peng, Hong Mei; Choules, Becky F.; Yao, Wei Wei; Zhang, Zhengyang; Webster, Richard D; Gill, Peter


Heterocyclic compounds with structures similar to vitamin E, but without the hydroxyl hydrogen atom, were synthesized and their electrochemical behavior examined in acetonitrile solutions and as solids in aqueous solutions of varying pH by attaching the compounds to the surface of a glassy carbon electrode. Compound 1, containing a fully methylated aromatic ring was found to be the most long-lived following one-electron oxidation, with its radical cation (1 +.) surviving in acidic aqueous...[Show more]
