Spin Trapping Reagents

Spin trapping reagents are useful in ESR/EPR spectroscopy to detect and identify short-lived radicals. In general, the spin trapping reagent reacts with the radical to form a spin adduct that is more stable than the original free radical and can be spectroscopically analyzed afterwards with ESR/EPR spectroscopy. In some cases, the resulting adduct is also stable enough for analysis with other methods, such as NMR.

Most frequently, nitrones such as DMPO (5,5-Dimethyl-1-pyrroline N-oxide) or PBN (N-tert-Butyl-α-phenylnitrone) are used as spin traps but nitroso compounds also have been successfully applied to stabilize free radicals.
