Abstract

Zimmerman and Sandel have investigated many photolytic reactions involving benzyl compounds and have hypothesized the intermediate to be a carbonium ion. The addition of a meta-electron donating group has been used to increase the stability of the carbonium ion intermediate. 3, 5- Disubstituted benzyl carbonium ions have added stability.
