Abstract

A α-alkoxy benzyloxy radical 3 was generated by laser flash photolysis of peroxyacetal 2, and its UV spectrum, decomposition pattern, reactivity with PPh3, O2, and i-PrOH, and quantum yield were explored. It was found that the radical 3 is very unstable and highly reactive and performs β-C-H scission much faster than β-C-O scission and H-abstraction.
