spin trapping

A technique for detecting short-lived reactive free radicals in biological systems by providing a nitrone or nitrose compound for an addition reaction to occur which produces an electron spin resonance spectroscopy-detectable aminoxyl radical. In spin trapping, the compound trapping the radical is called the spin trap and the addition product of the radical is identified as the spin adduct. (free rad res comm 1990;9(3-6):163)
