Hydroxylamines and tocopherols are representative examples of "hyperactive" stabilizers that can supplement the performance of traditional stabilizers, such as phenolics and phosphites.
The ease detachment of the benzoyl group from the cycloadducts 9a,b was achieved through NaOH/MeOH treatment at room temperature for 24 h, affording the fairly stable hydroxylamines 10a,b.
It was shown [21, 22] that cyclic hydroxylamines as CMH can be used to assay formation of reactive oxidant species resulting from differently generated oxidative stress, detecting a 10-fold lower superoxide radical level than other spin-traps, thereby providing superior sensitivity for quantification of superoxide radical in vitro.
It provides guidance on selecting the appropriate aminating agent--whether haloamines, hydroxylamines, diazonium salts, azo compounds, or azides--for different types of carbon nucleophile.
