Abstract

The mechanism of photodecomposition of aryl sulfones has been investigated by using both steady-state and time-resolved techniques. Direct evidence for radical and triplet-state intermediates is provided. A correlation is found between the dynamics of reaction of the intermediate triplet states with the stabilities of the intermediate radicals.
