Oxidative electrochemical aryl C–C coupling of spiropyrans

Author affiliations

Abstract

The isolation and definitive assignment of the species formed upon electrochemical oxidation of nitro-spiropyran (SP) is reported. The oxidative aryl C–C coupling at the indoline moiety of the SP radical cation to form covalent dimers of the ring-closed SP form is demonstrated. The coupling is blocked with a methyl substituent para to the indoline nitrogen.
