The reaction of the ambident anion (2) derived from 2-cyano-3-ethyl-1-methyl-Δ3-piperideine (1) with trace quantities of O2 leads to the formation of compounds (3) to (7), and in particular the interesting dimer (5). The formation of these products is interpretted in terms of single electron transfer processes.
