Live longer! More than 25 new peroxides based on differently substituted naphthalenes have been synthesized. Their stability, both thermodynamic and kinetic, was determined through experiments in combination with density functional calculations (see figure). They are sufficiently stable at room temperature but release singlet oxygen efficiently, which might be interesting for applications in photodynamic therapy (PDT).
