Multi-electron transfer to and from organic molecules

Abstract:

Herein, the influence of protonation and adsorption upon the redox and electrocatalysis of quinone species - specifically anthraquinone derivatives – is investigated.

Through the comparison of the measured rate constants of one-electron reductions of a family of quinones in acetonitrile at both graphite and gold electrodes, it was confirmed that the redox potential indirectly influences the rate of electron transfer in a manner consistent with the potential-dependence of the density ...
