The C-ON bond homolysis in alkoxyamine 2a was chemically triggered by quaternization of the 1-(pyridin-2-yl)ethyl fragment using protonation, acylation, and oxidation into the N-oxide. The solvent effect was also investigated, and DFT calculations were performed to explore this chemical activation. Alkoxyamines 2a-d were also compared to the(More)
Recently, we reported a dramatic solvent effect on the phosphorus hyperfine coupling constant aP of β-phosphorylated six-membered ring nitroxides, that is, approximately 25 G of difference in aP from n-hexane to water (Org. Biomol. Chem. 2016, 14, -1228-1292). In this article, we report on the effect of intramolecular hydrogen bonding (IHB) in three(More)
For decades, the nitrogene hyperfine coupling constant aN of nitroxides has been applied to probe their environment using EPR. However, the small changes observed (≈2 G from n-pentane to water) with the solvent polarity allow only a qualitative discussion. A stable β-phosphorylated nitroxide exhibiting a small change in aN (≈3 G from n-pentane to water) and(More)
Recently, we showed that the phosphorus hyperfine coupling constant aPβ of persistent cyclic nitroxides decreased with the normalized polarity Reichardt's constant E. Thus, we investigated the changes in aPβ in binary mixtures of solvents. The sensitivity of aPβ to the solvent was high enough to allow us to perform water titration in THF, 1,4-dioxane, and(More)
In vivo investigations of enzymatic processes using non-invasive approaches are a long-lasting challenge. Recently, we showed that Overhauser-enhanced MRI is suitable to such a purpose. A β-phosphorylated nitroxide substrate prototype exhibiting keto-enol equilibrium upon enzymatic activity has been prepared. Upon enzymatic hydrolysis, a large variation of(More)
In two recent articles (Org. Biomol. Chem., 2015 and 2016), we showed that changes in the phosphorus hyperfine coupling constant aP at position β in β-phosphorylated nitroxides can be dramatic. Such changes were applied to the titration of water in organic solvents and conversely of organic solvents in water. One of the molecules tested was a non-cyclic(More)
