The methods used for free radical detection are chemical titration, spectrophotometry, Gouy magnetic measurements and NMR shift technique. The free radicals chosen for this study are Fremy' s salt (ON(SO_3 )K_2),2,2-diphenyl-1-picryl hydrazyl (DPPH) 3-carbamoyl-2,2,5,5-tetramethylpyrrolidin-1-yloxy (CTM-pyrrolidin), 3-carbamoyl-2,2,5,5-tetramethyl-3-pyrrolin-1-yloxy (CTM-pyrrolin), 4-acetamido-2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidino-1- oxyl (ATMP) and galvinoxyl. The detectable range for each method is given. The NMR method is a fast and convenient method for the magnetic susceptibility determination of a sample in solution, with. accuracy up to ± 1%.
