Abstract

The reactions of dibenzoyl peroxide (BPO) with organophosphorus compounds have been studied by means of an ESR technique combined with spin trapping. The intermediate phosphorus-centered radicals were trapped by N-benzylidene-t-butylamine N-oxide (PBN) and 5,5-dimethyl-1-pyrroline N-oxide (DMPO). The spin adducts with a characteristic hyperfine coupling constant (hfcc) due to a phosphorus atom were observed. From identification of trapped radicals, possible mechanisms of the reactions have been proposed. The hfccs due to β-hydrogen and phosphorus atoms exhibited a large temperature dependence for phosphoranyl-PBN spin adducts, while for phosphinyl-PBN spin adduct the dependence was small. Based on the P and H hfccs, the conformational positions of the adducts trapped by PBN and DMPO are discussed.
