1,3,5-Trinitrobenzene, 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene and 1-methoxy-2,4,6- trinitrobenzene undergoes reversible dimerization, after electrochemical reduction of two units of corresponding anion radical. The π-dimer formed captures molecular oxygen (O2) leading to a σ o-oH-adduct, in an atmosphere of oxygen or even air. The σo-oH-adduct is able to reversibly bind and remove dioxygen after an external redox stimulus. © the Owner Societies.
