Description/Abstract

The kinetics of formation of alpha,alpha-dicyano-p-toluoylcyanide anion (DCTC-) by reaction of TCNQ(0) and its radical anion salts with nitrite ion have been investigated spectroscopically; the reaction of TCNQ(0) with excess nitrite is first order, whereas oxidation of TCNQ(.-) appears to proceed via TCNQ(0) as an intermediate. The first X-ray structural study of a simple DCTC- salt, K+[2.2.2] DCTC-, is also reported.
