Abstract : Six products have been identified in the oxidation of N-phenyl-2-naphthylamine by peroxy radicals. Three of the products, 1.1-bis(N-phenyl-2-naphthylamine), N,N'-diphenyl-N-(2-naphthyl)-1,2-naphthylenediamine, and 7-phenyl-dibenzo(c,g)carbazole, are formed by the coupling of amino radicals. The remaining products, 2-anilino-1,4-naphthoquinone, 2-anilino-1,4-naphthoquinone-4-anil, and 4-(N-phenyl-2-naphthylamino)-1,2-naphthoquinone, are believed to be formed by the attack of various nucleophiles on 1,2-naphthoquinone-2-anil. This o-quinone imine was not identified among the products, but it is probably formed in the reaction of amino radicals with peroxy radicals. (Author)
