Abstract

Eight 15N-labeled derivs. of 1-ethoxy-2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidine were synthesized in order to investigate the effects of their structural units on 15N NMR spectra. A single peak is found for each alkoxyamine. The chem. shift depends extensively on the nature of the a carbon atom of the alkoxy group. The remote functional group attached to position 4 of the piperidine ring has a smaller but still significant effect. The results of the 15N NMR measurements are supported by the detection of the N-H and N-C spin-spin coupling from the 1H and 13C NMR. The investigated alkoxyamines are model compds. for the radical-trapping products of styryl, Me methacryloyl, a-methylstyryl, and Me acryloyl radicals by 15N-labeled nitroxides. The potential of 15N NMR spectroscopy to analyze such products is discussed. In addn., it is shown that the 13C chem. shifts of the a carbon atom of the alkoxy group fall in an empty part of the 13C NMR spectrum, which allows the identification of trapped (macro)radicals via natural abundance 13C NMR.
