|Abstract||The reduction of the bicyclic G-factor endoperoxides G3 and G3Me was studied in N,N-dimethylformamide using cyclic voltammetry and convolution analysis. Electron transfer leads to irreversible cleavage of the O-O bond. Detailed analysis of the voltammetry curves reveals a non-linear dependence on the transfer coefficient indicating a mechanistic transition from a stepwise mechanism to one with more concerted character with increasing potential. By using quantum calculations to estimate the O-O bond dissociation energies, the experimental data was used to evaluate the standard reduction potentials and other pertinent thermochemical information.|
