Spectroscopic studies of cutaneous photosensitizing agents--XIV. The spin trapping of free radicals formed during the photolysis of halogenated salicylanilide antibacterial agents



Spectroscopic studies of cutaneous photosensitizing agents--XIV. The spin trapping of free radicals formed during the photolysis of halogenated salicylanilide antibacterial agents



Photochemistry and Photobiology 50(3): 287-295



Several antibacterial halogenated salicylanilides, including 3,3',4',5-tetrachlorosalicylanilide (TCSA) and 3,4',5-tribromosalicylanilide (TBSA) are known to cause photoallergy. We have carried out photochemical and spin trapping studies to determine whether free radicals may be involved in the photoallergic response. Irradiation (lambda greater than 300 nm) of TCSA in buffered (pH 7.4) 50% ethanol resulted in the rapid loss of the 3-chloro atom, followed by the much slower release of 5- and then the 4'-chloro atoms to give 3'-chlorosalicylanilide as a stable photoproduct. Under the same conditions TBSA successively lost the 3-, 5- and 4'-bromine atoms to give salicylanilide. When TCSA or TBSA were irradiated (lambda = 356 nm) in buffered (pH 7.4) 50% ethanol containing 2-methyl-2-nitrosopropane (MNP) only solvent-derived free radicals were detected. However, irradiation (lambda = 356 nm) of TCSA and MNP in 0.1 N NaOH generated an ESR spectrum consisting of a broad triplet (aN = 15.6 G). This spectrum was attributed to the adduct formed by the reaction of MNP with the aryl radical generated by the loss of a chlorine atom from the sterically hindered 3-(or 4'-)-position. Under the same conditions TBSA initially generated a broad triplet (aN = 15.5 G) similar to that observed for TCSA. However, upon further irradiation a 21-line spectrum (aN = 14.4 G, a2H = 2.0 G and a2H = 0.9 G) appeared.
