Rapid, quantitative, and site specific synthesis of biomolecular radicals from a simple photocaged precursor

Author affiliations

Abstract

Novel p-iodobenzoate-based labelling reagents are shown to be effective photocaged precursors for synthesizing biomolecular radicals site-selectively in the gaseous and condensed phases. In vacuo, a single pulse of UV photons (266 nm) is sufficient to quantitatively photolyse the C–I bond. In aqueous solutions, the photolysis half-life is estimated to be 2.5 minutes when irradiating with a 15 W compact fluorescent lamp (254 nm).
