α-Aryl N-adamant-1-yl nitrones were synthesized and evaluated with respect to the stability of the hydroxyl radical adduct. The polarity and water solubility of nitrones were altered with changing the α-aryl groups. Introduction of adamantane ring instead of tert-butyl group resulted in a reasonable good stability of hydroxyl radical adduct for biological measurements.
