The kinetics and mechanisms of the reactions between phenothiazine and CCl3OO·, ·OH were evaluated and the related rate constants were determined using nanosecond pulse radiolysis technique. The experimental results indicate that the maximum absorption of the transient product from the reaction between phenothiazine and CCl3OO·, ·OH was located at 380 nm, which is attributed to CCl3OO· and ·OH abstracting hydrogen from phenothiazine to generate a phenothiazine radical. The rate constants of the reactions between phenothiazine and CCl3OO·, ·OH were determined to be 1.1×109, 4.0×109 L·mol-1·s-1, respectively. These results provide a theoretical foundation for the further study of the antioxidant activity of phenothiazine.
