Antioxidant and antiradical activities of resorcinarene tetranitroxides.


PMID 19208474

Abstract

Resorcinarene oxazines bearing four TEMPO fragments at the wide rim of the macrocycle were prepared through the aminomethylation of resorcinarene octols with 4-amino-TEMPO and formaldehyde. Tetra-TEMPO resorcinarenes are efficient scavengers of 1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl radicals. The model studies revealed that macrocyclic structure and intramolecular hydrogen bonding make considerable contribution to antiradical activity of these compounds. Tetra-TEMPO resorcinarenes show also superoxide dismutase-like activity and efficiently inhibit ABAP-induced peroxidation of linoleic acid.
