Suzuki, Heck and Sonogishira coupling reactions of paramagnetic vinyl bromides 1-6 gave monofunctional (7a,b), homobifunctional (8a,b, 24), and heterobifunctional pyrroline nitroxides (9-19, 31) under mild conditions in a one-step reaction. From these compounds thiol-specific spin labels 26 and 28 and pyrroline nitroxide annulated heterocycles 30 and 32 were synthesized. The ethynyl derivative of pyrroline nitroxide 33 also can be used as an acetylene reactant in Larock indole synthesis to give the paramagnetic indole derivative 36.
