Abstract

The charge alternation principle correlates nicely with the redox potential of disubstituted benzenes, and predicts that the least thermodynamically stable isomer in a given series of ortho-, para-, and meta- disubstituted benzenes, is also the easiest to oxidize or reduce, electrochemically.
