Article title

Hydrazyl, Nitronyl-, and imino-nitroxides: Synthesis, properties and reaction with nitric oxide and nitrogen dioxide


Title variants

Languages of publication



Ten novel and stable free radicals of nitronyl-, imino-nitroxide and hydrazyl type compounds were synthesized and their physico-chemical properties investigated. UV-Vis and ESR spectroscopic data, as well as the lipophilicities and specific hydrophobic areas of the compounds are compiled. The reaction of these radical compounds with nitric oxide and nitrogen dioxide was also investigated. The radicals synthesized, show selectivity in their reaction with these nitric oxides, depending on their structure (nitronyl-nitroxide radicals react with NO, while hydrazyl radicals react with NO2). The processes are easily monitored by UV-Vis or ESR spectroscopy.
