The primary products, i.e., the radical cations and radicals obtained on oxidation of the glucobrassicin metabolites (and dietary supplements), indole-3-carbinol (I3C) and diindolylmethane (DIM), and those from parent indole (I) are characterized in an ionic liquid and in Ar matrices. The radical cations of I and I3C are stable toward (photo)deprotonation under these conditions, but the resulting... Plus

    Summary
    The primary products, i.e., the radical cations and radicals obtained on oxidation of the glucobrassicin metabolites (and dietary supplements), indole-3-carbinol (I3C) and diindolylmethane (DIM), and those from parent indole (I) are characterized in an ionic liquid and in Ar matrices. The radical cations of I and I3C are stable toward (photo)deprotonation under these conditions, but the resulting radicals can be generated by UV-photolysis of the neutral precursors. Two types of radicals, obtained by loss of hydrogen from N- and C-atoms, respectively, are found for I3C and DIM.
