Nitroxides are broadly used as molecular probes and labels in biophysics, structural biology, and biomedical research. Resistance of a nitroxide group bearing an unpaired electron to chemical reduction with low-molecular-weight antioxidants and enzymatic systems is of critical importance for these applications. The redox properties of nitroxides are known to depend on the ring size (for cyclic nitroxides) and electronic and steric effects of the substituents. Here, two highly strained nitroxides, 5-(tert-butyl)-5-butyl-2,2-diethyl-3-hydroxypyrrolidin-1-oxyl (4) and 2-(tert-butyl)-2-butyl-5,5-diethyl-3,4-bis(hydroxymethyl)pyrrolidin-1-oxyl (5), were prepared via a reaction of the corresponding 2-tert-butyl-1-pyrroline 1-oxides with butyllithium. Thermal stability and kinetics of reduction of the new nitroxides by ascorbic acid were studied. Nitroxide 5 showed the highest resistance to reduction.

It was shown that dipole-stabilized paramagnetic carbanion lithiated 4,4,5,5-tetramethyl-4,5-dihydro-1H-imidazol-1-oxyl 3-oxide can be attached in a nucleophilic manner to either isolated or conjugated aldonitrones of the 2,5-dihydroimidazole 3-oxide and 2H-imidazole 1-oxide series to afford adducts the subsequent oxidation of which leads to polyfunctional mono- and diradicals. According to XRD, at least two polymorphic modifications can be formed during crystallization of the resulting paramagnetic compounds, and for each of them, geometric parameters of the molecules are similar. An EPR spectrum of the diradical in frozen toluene has a complicated lineshape, which can be fairly well reproduced by using X-ray diffraction structural analysis and the following set of parameters: D=14.9 mT, E=1.7 mT; tensor a((14) N)=[0.260 0.260 1.625] mT, two equivalent tensors for the nitronyl nitroxide moiety a((14) N)=[0.198 0.198 0.700] mT, and g≈2.007. According to our DFT and ab initio calculations, the intramolecular exchange in the diradical is very weak and most likely ferromagnetic.

Recently, a new concept of pH-switchable agents for reversible addition-fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) polymerization has been introduced by Benaglia et al. (J. Am. Chem. Soc.2009, 131, 6914-6915). In this paper we extended the concept of pH-switchable mediators to nitroxide mediated polymerization (NMP) by employing nitroxides with basic or acidic groups as controlling agents. Four alkoxyamines, the derivatives of 2-(4-(dimethylamino)-2-ethyl-5,5-dimethyl-2-(pyridin-4-yl)-2,5-dihydro-1H-imidazol-1-oxyl and 2-(2-carboxyethyl)-5,5-diethyl-2,4-dimethyl-2,5-dihydro-1H-imidazol-1-oxyl, have been prepared. The influence of pH on alkoxyamine homolysis rate constants (k(d)) and on the nitroxide-alkyl radical recombination rate constants (k(c)) was studied. All alkoxyamines under study as well as the parent nitroxides have several basic groups, which under pH variation can undergo consecutive protonation. It was shown that the k(d) value under basic conditions are significantly (up to 15-fold) higher than in acidic solution at the same temperature, whereas the k(c) value in basic solutions decrease by a factor of 2 only. The efficiency of NMP is known to be dependent on k(d) and k(c), both constants being dependent on the monomer structure; therefore the performance of NMP of different monomers in the controlled mode requires different conditions. It is shown that the pH value crucially affects the polymerization regime, changing it from the controlled to the uncontrolled mode. The controlled regime of NMP of different hydrophilic monomers (sodium 4-styrenesulphonate and acrylamide) in aqueous solution under mild conditions (90 °C) can be achieved using the same alkoxyamine by the variation of the pH value. The chain length of polymers depends on pH value during the polymerization.
