Iminopyridine: The redox chemistry of N-2,6-diisopropylphenylimino-2-pyridine was investigated in detail, including cyclic voltammetry. Bulk samples of alkali metal salts of monoanionic radical and dianionic iminopyridine were synthesized and characterized by various methods (see figure). The radical form was fully investigated by magnetic measurements, EPR spectroscopy, and DFT calculations.
