NO Reactions with Radicals

NO' has an unpaired electron, thus NO' can react with other radical species. For instance, NO' can react with the hydroxyl radical (Equation 22)

Alternatively, NO' can react withN02 to form the reactive the nitrogen oxide species N203 (Equations 23 and 24).

Furthermore, alkyl, alkoxy, and alkylperoxide radicals have also been shown to react with NO (Equation 25) terminating lipid peroxidation chain reactions and protecting the cells against peroxide induced cytotoxicity.
