A comparison of free radical detection methods
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%.
