The effects of polar solvents and proton donors on various photoreactions of the benzene ring with electron-acceptor alkenes and alkynes are described and discussed in relation to the various electronic excitation mechanisms involved. Proton donors prove valuable as mechanistic probes for polar intermediates in such processes, and can in some systems both initiate and divert reaction pathways.
