Oxygen Uptake Studies of Organic and Inorganic Oxidations

Vasilisa Filippenko
The investigations in this thesis deal with two types of very different oxidations. The first study follows our groups' discovery of a new and unusual class of antioxidants, where the actual antioxidant is, paradoxically, a carbon-centered radical. The radical precursors are dimer molecules that, upon heating, dissociate to form two persistent carbon-centered free radicals, unreactive towards oxygen. These radicals act as chain-breaking antioxidants by rapidly reacting with peroxyl radicals that participate in propagation of autoxidation...
