Abstract

Using electronic absorption spectra and thin layer chromatography, the reactionof 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) with O2•, HO•, HO, and HOO anions and freeradicals revealed the formation of the para-nitro- and para-hydroxy-derivatives of 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazine (DPPH-H) and of DPPH fragmentation products(diphenylamine, tetraphenylhydrazine). The reaction of DPPH with the O2•anion-radical(from KO2 in benzene solution at room temperature in the presence of 18-crown-6 ether) ispseudo-first-order during the first 25 minutes.
