Title: Dihydrotetrazine Antioxidants and Free Radical Reaction Inhibitors
Invention: The invention is the use of dihydrotetrazines as antioxidants to eliminate free radicals. Dihydrotetrazines were found to be superior to dihydropyridazines or hindered phenols in inhibiting free radical polymerization.
Background: Dihydrotetrazines donate up to two hydrogen atoms to terminate radical chain or oxidation ractions. These compounds can be prepared in the synthesis of tetrazines or by hydrogenation or reduction reactions.
- Can serve as an alternative antioxidant agent
- Increases efficacy
