Synthesis and Properties of the 5,10,15-Trimesityltruxen-5-yl Radical
2013-09-20T00:00:00Z (GMT) by
The synthesis of a long-lived, truxene-based radical that is highly delocalized and exhibits a narrow EPR absorption is reported. The radical is stable for multiple hours in a solution exposed to air and remains for months in the solid state under inert gas. Characterization and properties are discussed.
