Electron squeeze-out: The redox chemistry of the Mg+ ion with CH3CN in aqueous media has been demonstrated at the molecular level. The valence electron of Mg+ is solvated out by water (see figure) and can reduce the CH3CN molecule to form CH3CN.−, followed by a spontaneous proton transfer to give CH3CNH. or CH3CHN..
