Abstract:

The reactions of diphenoyl peroxide with a series of electronically excited state hydrocarbon reactants was investigated by pulsed laser spectrophotometry. It was found that the primary reaction between the excited state and the peroxide is electron transfer to generate a radical ion pair. The ions were detected by their characteristic absorption spectra. The reaction kinetics were measured and used to verify the generation of radical ion intermediates in the chemically initiated electron-exchange luminescence CIEEL mechanism for the chemiluminescence of organic peroxides.
