Electron Spin Resonance spectra of nitroxide radicals formed in the nitrogen oxide olefin systems (isobutylene, styrene and α-methylstyrene) have been investigated. The primary reaction step is the formation of alkyl radicals by the addition of nitrogen dioxide to the methylene carbon of olefins. The nitric oxide scavenges two alkyl radicals. In styrene and α-methylstyrene nitroxide diastereomers with different rates of formation and termination have been observed.
