Facile air-oxidation of large aromatic hydrocarbon bay regions to bay region quinones: predicted oxygen-sensitivity of hydrogen-terminated carbon nanotubes

Author affiliations

Abstract

Dimesitylbisanthene (1) oxidizes to the corresponding bay region quinone (2) on standing in solutions exposed to air and ambient light. It is anticipated that hydrogen-terminated carbon nanotubes with bay regions on the rim are likely to exhibit even greater sensitivity toward air oxidation.
