Electron spin resonance spectra have been observed for anion radicals derived from 4-fluorobenzophenone, 2-fluorobenzophenone, 4,4′-difluorobenzophenone, 3,3′-difluorobenzophenone and decafluorobenzophenone. All radicals have been generated by electrolytic means in dimethoxyethane-acetonitrile mixtures. In the case of the mono- and difluorinated species, interpretation of the spectra as arising from the corresponding anion radicals is possible. In the case of decafluorobenzophenone, the anion radical cannot be the species giving rise to the spectrum.
