Abstract

The usefulness of triphenyl phosphite ozonide for generating singlet oxygen is greatly increased by the use of pyridine in methanol as solvent, which permits the controlled thermal generation of singlet oxygen at temperatures as low as -100 °C without significant diminution in the yield. Among bases of similar ionization potential or of similar basic strength, pyridine shows unusually low quenching power for singlet oxygen. © 1980, American Chemical Society. All rights reserved.
