Color formation observed in oxidation of aromatic compounds in trifluoroacetic acid will depend essentially upon three parameters, the latter two of which can be varied considerably oxidation potential of the organic substrate and electrophilicity of its oxidation intermediates, oxidizing power of the reagent, and Lewis basicity of the cosolvent. The stability of the colors correlate well with theoretical predictions for radical cation stability. Author
