Birch Reduction - Experimental Testing and Computational Verification
... to experimentally assess whether the anisole and toluene radical anion protonated ortho or meta ... protium–deuterium medium would be greater for the radical anion, of the first protonation step, than for the carbanion of the penultimate step ... The reasoning was that carbanions are much more basic than the corresponding radical anions and thus will react more exothermically and less selectively in protonation ...
