2H NMR, EPR, computational and product analyses of the photolysis of 2,4-diphenylpentan-3-one (DPP) adsorbed on MFI size/shape selective zeolites are consistent with supramolecular structural changes as a function of surface coverage that provide a novel method for the generation of persistent diffusing organic free radicals.
