Synthesis and reactivity of a 1,8-bis(methylium)naphthalenediyl dication. Academic Article uri icon


  • A voracious appetite for electrons is displayed by the 1,8-bis(methylium)naphthalenediyl dication (see picture). Cooperative effects arising from the proximity of the methylium centers intensify the electron affinity of this molecule and make it very sensitive to reduction.
