Photodecomposition Mechanism of 2-Methoxy-1,2-diphenyl Diazoethane
Dae Dong Sung, Gui Taek Lim, Min Sik Kim, Dong Kyu Park
The mechanism of the photodecomposition of 2-methoxy-1,2-diphenyl diazoethane has been investigated in methanol and isoprene using time-resolved laser flash photolysis techniques. The reaction of triplet carbene which is generated from 2-methoxy-1,2-diphenyl diazoethane with methanol is believed to proceed via thermal excitation to the singlet state. The activation energy and enthalpy are consistent with a mechanism involving thermal equilibrium between the triplet and singlet state followed by the reaction of the singlet with methanol to give ether.
