Organosilane cation radicals which have tethered nucleophiles are found to undergo rapid intramolecular nucleophilic substitution in both high and low polarity solvents. This reaction competes with both separation and return electron transfer within the primary ion radical pair generated by photoinduced bimolecular electron transfer. These results demonstrate the ability to effect ion radical substitutions in low polarity solvents.
