E.s.r. spectroscopy has been employed with the radiomimetic TiIII–H2O2 couple and an aqueous flow system to study the reactions between the hydroxyl radical and some sugar phosphates. For the furanose compounds hydrogen-atom abstraction from the carbon adjacent to the alicyclic oxygen is preferred: subsequent phosphate loss occurs when the radical centre is adjacent to the carbon bound to phosphate, and, as judged by steady-state e.s.r. and time-resolved pulse-radiolysis experiments, is faster… CONTINUE READING
