Abstract

By a rotating ring-disk electrode (RRDE) in LiBr+hexamethylphosphoramide (HMPA) solns. solvated electrons react very slowly with water, even at concns. >1M. The reaction of benzene with solvated electrons in LiBr+HMPA solns. takes place only in the presence of a proton donor such as water. A 2nd-order reaction rate const. was detd. for this reaction and is 0.26 * 103 M-1 s-1 at a disk current of -1.25 mA. [on SciFinder (R)]
