The sum of the redox potentials ,Sum of lb' is substantially
smaller than those reported so far for hydrocarbons. Such a
small EFm value can be explained in terms of the electronic
stability of three redox states of the phenalenyl unit owing to the
delocalization of the generated charges or the unpaired electron
over the molecules.
The trication l b 3 + was obtained as a dark green solution by
dissolving lb' in concentrated D,SO, or as dark green needles[g]
by treating lb' with three equivalents of tris(4-bromopheny1)aminium hexachloroantimonate. The trianion lb3- was
generated as a red purple solution[''] by the reaction of the
trihydro compound 10 with a potassium mirror in a sealed degassed tube at -78 "C for a week. The 'H and 13CN M R chemical shifts of l b 3 + and l b 3 - are given in Table 1. The total 13C
chemical shift change @A&) of the sp2 carbon atoms on going
from l b 3 + to lb3- is 1041.63 (or 173.61 per electron), which
supports the idea of the presence of the trication and the trianion, respectively.["] The shift changes (Ah,) are large for the C
atoms at positions X I , r 2 , and x 3 , which correspond to the x
positions of the phenalenyl,[121but small for the C atoms at
other positions except for the central benzene ring. This finding
suggests that the phenalenyl units contribute largely to the stability of both triply charged species.[13'
The most striking feature is that the signals of the protons at
the position b2 of lb3- unexpectedly appear at lower field than
the signals of the corresponding protons of l b 3 + , in spite of the
shielding effect caused by the three negative charges. The I3C
chemical shifts of the C atoms at position fl' reveal that the
electron density at the position b2 is slightly larger in lb3- than
in l b 3 + .These findings clearly suggest the effect of a diamagnetic ring current in l b 3 - . Ring currents of l b 3 + and l b 3 - were
calculated by London-McWeeny's method.[141For l b 3 + , the
phenalenyl unit causes a weakly diamagnetic effect and the

trindenyl unit a paramagnetic effect. In contrast, l b 3 - exhibits
pronounced diamagnetic ring currents along the periphery of
the molecule.

Proton transfer processes are elementary steps in many acidand base-catalyzed organic and biochemical reactions." '] Because of their complexity, simple model compounds are required if the proton motion is to be followed experimentally, for
example, by NMR spectroscopy or other fast reaction techniques. Model systems are also important for the theoretical
