Subsequently, vitamin E ([alpha]-tocopherol) is a chain-breaking antioxidant to inhibit the propagation step where the alkyl radical reacts with molecular oxygen at a very high rate, giving a peroxyl radical.
Alkyl radical scavenging activity: Alkyl radical scavenging activity was measured by the method used by Hiramoto et al [19].
In this system, II free radical attacked the [beta]-carbon of V free radical to generate VII free radical and alkyl radical with molecular weight of 141, whereas alkyl radical lost H atom and formed the alkene with molecular weight of 140 (Scheme 1(j and k)).
If these peroxy radicals abstract hydrogen from another polymer chain (thus creating another alkyl radical), they become hydroperoxides.
Ferrocene is known to readily form charge transfer complexes (CTCs) with alkyl halides, as evidenced by the appearance of a feature indicative of a charge transfer complex at ~310 nm; subsequently, upon irradiation, the complex dissociates into the ferrocenium ion, chloride ion, and alkyl radical (Fig.

The polar TPE includes at least one elastomer block and one polar thermoplastic block selected from a homopolymer or copolymers of an alkylacrylic acid ester, with an alkyl radical containing 1 to 4 carbon atoms.
The DPPH and alkyl radical scavenging activities (RSA) were computed following equation in which H and H0 were the relative peak height of radical signals with and without sample, respectively.
It is based upon differences in the kinetic reactivity of nitroxyl and C=C functionality toward radical trapping [9], Recall that the rate constants the rate constants for alkyl radical combination with nitroxyls are generally of the order of [10.sup.8] - [10.sup.9] [M.sup.-1]s[l] [33], while those for alkyl radical addition to acrylates are of the order of [10.sup.3]-[10.sup.5] [M.sup.-1]s[l] [34].
