Enhancement of electron accepting ability of para-benzoquinone by a single water molecule

Author affiliations

Abstract

Electron acceptors built upon the para-benzoquinone (pBQ) electrophore are ubiquitous in nature. Here, we present a frequency-resolved photoelectron spectroscopic study of the cold pBQ radical anion, pBQ, solvated by a single water molecule, as commonly encountered in nature. Our results show that the electron accepting ability is enhanced by the single water molecule and by elevated temperatures.
