Abstract

Abstract Evidence is given that the yields of photo-oxidation for free pyrene anions (Π −) and for anions associated with sodium cations (Π −Na +) in liquid THF and THP are connected to the effective threshold values for the photo- ionization of free and associated pyrene anions. Our experimental results indicate that the phenomena observed by Fisher and Rämme after flash-photolysis of sodium pyrenide in THF which have led to the postulation of transient; sodium atoms Na 0 may be interpreted as being caused by benzene or toluene negative ions.
