ABSTRACT The free radical trapping properties of eight 5-alkoxycarbonyl-5-methyl-1-pyrroline N-oxide (EMPO) type nitrones and those of 5,5-dimethyl-1-pyrroline N-oxide (DMPO) were evaluated for trapping of superoxide anion radicals in the presence of 2,6-di-O-methyl-beta-cyclodextrin (DM-beta-CD). (1)H-NMR titrations were performed to determine both stoichiometries and binding constants for the diamagnetic nitrone-DM-beta-CD equilibria. EPR titrations were then performed and analyzed using a two-dimensional EPR simulation program affording 1 : 1 and 1 : 2 stoichiometries for the nitroxide spin adducts with DM-beta-CD and the associated binding constants after spin trapping. The nitroxide spin adducts associate more strongly with DM-beta-CD than the nitrones. The ability of the nitrones to trap superoxide, the enhancement of the EPR signal intensity and the supramolecular protection by DM-beta-CD against sodium L-ascorbate reduction were evaluated.

    ABSTRACT: The effect of CD-inclusion on spin-trapping rates and spin-adduct decay rates for sulfur trioxide radical anion (SO3 −•) was investigated. SO3 −• radical was produced with UV photolysis of sodium sulfite in basic aqueous solution, and spin-trapped with various spin traps, i.e., PBN (α-phenyl-N-t-butylnitrone), DMPO (5,5-dimethyl pyrroline-1-oxide), and three other phosphoryl DMPO-type spin traps. A modified β-CD, 6-O-α-d-glucosyl-β-cyclodextrin (G-β-CD) having better inclusion properties than β-CD, was employed. Upon adding excess G-β-CD, decay rates of SO3 −• radical adducts significantly decreased in most spin traps. Half-lives of SO3 −• radical adducts of phosphoryl spin traps were one to two orders of magnitude longer than that of PBN or DMPO, and the G-β-CD addition further extended the half-life time. The spin traps containing phosphoryl-group all showed higher SO3 −• trapping rates than those of PBN and DMPO, but two phosphoryl spin traps achieved slower trapping rates by G-β-CD addition. In addition, the structures of CD-inclusion complexes of spin traps were established by means of 1D and 2D NMR measurements. Based on the results, the influences of inclusion on the spin-trapping rate processes and spin-adduct stabilizations were discussed. We conclude that substituents in DMPO-type spin traps may be modified to provide best spin-trapping capabilities in the presence or absence of CD.

    ABSTRACT: We present an X-ray diffraction (XRD) and multi frequency electron spin resonance (ESR) study of the structure and dynamics of an inclusion complex of p-hexanoyl calix[4]arene (C6OH) with 4-methoxy-2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidine-N-oxyl (MT). The single crystal XRD experiments reveal that MT along with ethanol (solvent) molecules are entrapped in a capsular type crystalline lattice of the host C6OH material. ESR measurements were performed at 9.2 GHz/0.33 T (X-band) and at 360 GHz/14 T. In order to avoid ESR line broadening resulting from electron dipole-dipole interaction between nitroxides occupying neighbouring capsules in the crystal lattice, the capsules containing nitroxides were separated from each other by capsules containing diamagnetic dibenzylketone (DBK). Due to the extremely high g-tensor resolution of ESR at 360 GHz, we were able to distinguish, by shifts of their gxx component, between encapsulated nitroxide molecules forming a hydrogen bond between their O-(N) group and the OH group of an ethanol molecule occupying the same capsule and nitroxides missing this interaction. Temperature dependent ESR measurements revealed an orientational anisotropy in the motion of MT encapsulated in C6OH. Solid lipid nanoparticles (SLN) prepared from C6OH and loaded with the nitroxide retained the microcrystalline capsular structure of the pertinent inclusion complex. We found that encapsulated MT in SLNs becomes inaccessible to reducing agents such as sodium ascorbate.

    ABSTRACT: Multifrequency continuous wave (cw) and echo-detected (ED) electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) was employed to study the mobility of nitroxides confined in nanocapsules. The complexes p-hexanoyl calix[4]arene with 4-methoxy-2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidine-N-oxyl (MT) and N-(2-methylpropyl)-N-(1-diethylphosphono-2,2-dimethylpropyl)-aminoxyl (DEPN) were studied by X-, W-band and 360 GHz cw EPR at temperatures between 90 and 370 K. Thereby we were able to extract the canonical values of the hyperfine and g-tensors of the encapsulated radicals as well as information on restricted orientational dynamics of the caged spin probes. Comparing cw and ED-EPR data obtained on MT@C6OH we found that between 90 and 200 K the caged nitroxide undergoes isotropic small-angle fluctuations (librations), whereas at higher temperatures restricted rotations of the radical with correlation times of 0.75 x 10(-10) s and 1.2 x 10(-10) s dominate at 325 and 300 K, respectively. The activation energy of the rotational motion of encapsulated MT radicals was evaluated as E(a) = 1.0 kcal mol(-1), which is comparable to the magnitude of van der Waals interactions. Compared to MT, the reorientational motion of DEPN was found to be slower and more isotropic.
