One-electron transfer during reaction of difluorodinitromethane with nucleophilic agents

  • 18 Accesses

  1. 1.

    Using the ESR method it was shown that difluorodinitromethane can form the anion-radical CF2(CO2) 2 under the influence of various nucleophilic agents in aprotic organic solvents as the medium.

  2. 2.

    The obtained results corroborate the theoretical possibility that the step of one-electron transfer can exist in the reactions of aliphatic polynitrocompounds with nucleophilic agents.
