Synthesis and spin trapping properties of polystyrene supported trifluoromethylated cyclic nitrones


Polystyrene supported fluorinated cyclic nitrone spin-traps: Resin-2-HFDMPO (2-hydroxymethyl-2-methyl-5-(trifluoromethyl)-3,4-dihydro-2H-pyrrole-1-oxide) and Resin-2-PFDMPO (2-(3-hydroxypropyl)-2-methyl-5-(trifluoromethyl)-3,4-dihydro-2H-pyrrole 1-oxide) containing a trifluoromethyl pyrroline-N-oxide core were developed to detect free radicals under flow conditions. A continuous flow EPR technique was used to evaluate the spin trapping properties of these tethered nitrones. While both resins trapped radicals, polymer supported nitrone Resin-2-PFDMPO with a longer and more flexible linker showed a more information rich spectrum than Resin-2-HFDMPO.
