    • Abstract


      The borate radical is produced by the flash photolysis of an aqueous alkaline solution of NaBO2 and K2S2O8. The absorption spectrum of the transient borate radical shows two maxima. The self decay of this radical is second order. Rate constants for the reactions of this radical with some organic substrates have been determined.
