  • A method is proposed for the preparation of 2-amino-4,6-di-tert-butylphenol. N-(3,5-Di-tert-butyl-2-hydroxyphenyl)salicylaldimine is readily mercurated with the formation of a mercury-containing free radical. Pd(II), Co(II), and VO(II) salicylaldiminates based on 2-amino-4,6-di-tert-butylphenol are capable of one-electron oxidation with the formation of metal-containing phenoxyl radicals. Analysis of the ESR spectra showed that the appearance of the metallocycle leads to a sharp increase in the stability of the radical system.
  • 1H-1-Oxo-2,4,6,8-tetrakis(tert-butyl)phenoxazine undergoes ligand exchange reactions and behaves as a spin trap for metal-centered radicals, as a result of which stable paramagnetic complexes are formed with delocalization of the unpaired electron in the organic ligand. Paramagnetic complexes are also formed as the result of a reaction between potassium salt (IA) and triphenyl-tin and triphenyl-lead monochlorides.
  • The vapor pressures of methyl tert-butyl ether, ethyl tert-butyl ether, isopropyl tert-butyl ether, tert-amyl methyl ether, and tert-amyl ethyl ether were measured by ebulliometry or the static method in the pressure ranges 14--102 and 3--835 kPa (methyl tert-butyl ether), respectively. The data were correlated using the Antoine and Wagner equations. The experimental data of methyl tert-butyl ether and ethyl tert-butyl ether were compared with data available in the literature.
  • The rotational alignment, ..lambda..-doubling, and spin-orbit populations of the NO fragment following the photodissociation of (CH/sub 3/)/sub 2/NNO and (CH/sub 3/)/sub 3/CONO in different absorption bands are determined. The results for the S/sub 1/(n..pi..*) withdraws S/sub 0/ and S/sub 2/(..pi pi..*) withdraws S/sub 0/ transitions in both molecules indicate planarity of the fragmentation processes and an A'' symmetry of the S/sub 1/ state. For the S/sub 2/(..pi pi..*) withdraws S/sub 0/ transition in (CH/sub 3/)/sub 2/NNO the results imply an A' symmetry of the S/sub 2/ state. The values obtained for the alignment are indicative of the difference between themore » directions of the transition dipole moment for the S/sub 1/(n..pi..*) withdraws S/sub 0/ and the S/sub 2/(..pi pi..*) withdraws S/sub 0/ transitions.« less
  • Time-resolved absorption spectroscopy with subpicosecond resolution evidences a dominant ultrafast photoinduced process (<5ps) in 1-benzyl-4-tert-butyl-1,4,-dihydronicotinamide (tBuBNAH), a synthetic analogue of the coenzyme NADH. This process does not occur in the unsubstituted analogue BNAH2. To explain this observation, we propose a relaxation mechanism involving carbon-carbon cleavage in the first excited singlet state with formation of tBu{center_dot} and BNAH{center_dot} neutral radicals, followed by efficient primary geminate recombination in the ground state.
