New Benzo-15-Crown-5 based nitronyl-nitroxide and the corresponding imino-nitroxide radicals have been synthesized and characterized. 4′-Formyl-benzo-15-crown-5 reacts with N,N′-dihydroxy-2,3-diamino-2,3-dimethylbutane to yield the N,N′-dihydroxyimidazolidine and the dehydration product N-hydroxyimidazolidine. Mild oxidation of these two species leads to the corresponding stable nitronyl-nitroxide and imino-nitroxide radicals respectively.
