Oxidation of the Trihydroxybenzenes of Hydroxyl Radical
MetadataShow full item record
Radicals produced in the oxidation of pyrogallol and phloroglucinol have been studied with ESR to find the acidity constants and observe the proton exchange with H20. The object of these studies were the kinetic effects of changing pH on the mixed spin states of the semiquinones, phloroglucinol and pyrogallol. The only optical work has been done by Steenken and Meta. This work was not done on the trihydroxybenzens themselves but on closely related compounds.
