The Double Photodissociation of Geminal, Dichloride
M.S. Platz+, Woo Bung Lee*
Photolysis of dichlorodiphenylmethane in glassy 2-MeTHF at 77K results in the formation of diphenylcarbene and the diphenylchloromethyl radical, which were detected by their flourescence emission and excitation spectra. The relative yield of the carbene to radical is shown to vary dramatically as a function of irradiation time. The photolability of the radical is also demonstated. These results were interpreted in terms of a two step mechanism, where the diphenylchloromethyl radical is an intermediate in the formation of diphenylcarbene.
