Abstract

New pH-sensitive spin probes - 2,3,4,6,7,8-hexahydro­imidazo[1,5-a]pyrimidines - were synthesized by the reaction of 4-amino-2,5-dihydro-2,2,5,5-tetramethyl-1H-imidazol-1-oxyl with aminomethylated α,β-unsaturated carbonyl methiodides or hydrochlorides. Introduction of hydrophilic (COOH) or lipophilic (C10H21) groups in the aminomethylated compounds allowed the synthesis of pH-sensitive spin probes with different solubilities.
