Abstract

Abstract The semiquinone radicals produced by one-electron reduction of 9, 10-anthraquinone, 1-amino-9, 10-anthraquinone and 1-hydroxy-9, 10-anthraquinone have been characterized in aqueous-organic mixed solvent comprising of 30.2 mol dm −3 water, 5 mol dm −3 isopropanol and 1 mol dm −3 acetone, using the pulse radiolysis technique. Spectroscopic characteristics, the kinetic parameters of formation and decay and one acid dissociation constants of the semiquinones and one-electron reduction potentials of the quinones have been estimated. The characteristics of the present semiquinone systems have been compared with those of other similar systems. The observed differences in characteristics of the semiquinones due to different substitutions have been analysed.
