Cation effects on the cyclic voltammograms of azotoluene and the potassium cation selectivity of the electrochemically reduced azo-cryptand 7,16-azobis(1,3-phenylenemethylene)-1,4,10,13-tetraoxa-7,16-diazaoctadecane

Abstract

Azobenzenes are shown for the first time to exhibit substantial Li + and Na+ cation effects on their electrochemical behaviour, and although K+ does not interact with Ar-N=N-Ar, or its reduced form, a strong interaction is observed when K+ is bound as a cryptate complex.
