The voltammetric behaviour of the antioxidants 3-tert-butyl-4-hydroxyanisole (BHA) and tert-butylhydroquinone (TBHQ), at a polymer electrode modified with nickel phthalocyanine as electron mediator, is described, and an electroanalytical method for the determination of these antioxidants based on their electrochemical oxidation on

Peroxynitrite is a strong oxidant that reacts with a variety of biomolecules in vivo and in vitro. When rat thymocytes in phosphate buffer are exposed to 25 microM peroxynitrite for 10 min, DNA single strand breaks (SSB) can be detected.

After ip administration of 3-tert-butyl-4-hydroxyanisole (3-BHA) to rats, two previously undocumented metabolites 2-tert-butyl-5-methylthiohydroquinone (TBHQ-5-SMe) and 2-tert-butyl-6-methylthiohydroquinone (TBHQ-6-SMe) were identified in the urine by comparison with the authentic samples by GC/MS. In addition to these metabolites, 3-tert-butyl-4,5-dihydroxyanisole was also detected in

3-tert-Butyl-4-hydroxyanisole and tert-butyl-hydroquinone (TBHQ) are antioxidants known to promote renal and bladder carcinogenesis in the rat, although the mechanisms of these effects are unclear. Because glutathione (GSH) conjugates of a variety of hydroquinones are nephrotoxic, and because 2-tert-butyl-5-(glutathion-S-yl)hydroquinone [5-(GSyl)TBHQ], 2-tert-butyl-6-(glutathion-S-yl)hydroquinone
