A mechanistic study of the effects of antioxidants on the formation of malondialdehyde-like products in the reaction of hydroxyl radicals with deoxyribose.


The reactions of (*)OH radicals with deoxyribose, DR, form five different DR(*) radicals, only one of which is transformed into malondialdehyde (MDA)-like products. The radiolytic yield of the MDA-like products increases with the increase in the DR concentration indicating that some of the initially formed "unproductive" radicals react with DR to form the… (More)
