Channel electrode voltammetry using an irradiated gold electrode is used to study the photolysis of p-chloronitrobenzene in aqueous ethanolic solution in the presence of the hydroxide anion. The formation of the stable radical anion, [p-ClC6H4NO2]•-, via light-induced electron transfer is demonstrated and kinetic parameters are reported.
