Abstract : It was found possible to oxidize picrate ion on a platinum electrode in acetonitrile solution. A detailed study of the electrode process was undertaken by means of voltammetry, chronopotentiometry, and controlled potential coulometry. An overall reaction process is proposed which involves a very short-lived picryl radical that decays by at least two different reactions--the most predominant of which forms picric acid by hydrogen abstraction.
