Facile light-initiated radical generation from 4-substituted pyridine under ambient conditions†
Photochemical reactions that generate stable radical species under ambient conditions find unique applications in materials science. Here we present a facile photogeneration of a stable radical species from a 4-substituted pyridine derivative in the presence of water and air at room temperature. The radical generation reaction accompanies a visible colour change to green and is repeatable multiple times.
