The oxidation of a dimeric N-benzyldihydronicotinamide with various oxidants such as quinones, triphenyl carbenium ions and a triplet exited tris(bipyridine) ruthenium(II) complex occurs via initial outer-sphere electron transfer followed by fast C-C bond cleavage and second electron transfer. The kinetic studies allow the determination of the oxidation potential of this compound.
