Abstract

Based on EPR, Raman, and mass spectral evidence, the formula 1 best describes the transient intermediate which forms upon treatment of 2 with tert‐butyl hydroperoxide in the presence of alcohol. Kinetic evidence suggests that its decomposition by oxidation of the bound alcohol proceeds via the transition state 3. tpa = tris(2‐pyridylmethyl)amine. (Formula Presented.) (Figure Presented.)
