The Chemistry of 1,2-Dithiolane (Trimethylene Disulfide) As aModel for the Primary Quantum Conversion Act in Photosynthesis

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Some chemical and photochemical observations of 1,2-dithiolane and its derivatives are reported with particular reference to the possible mode of function of the naturally occurring system, 6-thioctic acid. Experimental evidence is presented to demonstrate that the strain energy in this 5-membered ring is not less than 6.5 Kcals and probably larger. Reagents which both oxidize and reduce this ring are described together with the conditions required for its reformation from the corresponding dithiol. Evidence is adduced to indicate that the primary product of photolysis of this ring in acetic media is very likely a thiol and sulfenic acid or derivative ... continued below
