Nitric Oxide. 1998;2(1):66-72.Nitroxyl (HNO), a penultimate product in the NOS-catalyzed conversion of L-arginine to L-citrulline, generated from Angeli's salt (AS) was determined by trapping it with nitrosobenzene (NB) to produce cupferron. The cupferron thus produced was characterized by complexation with Fe3+, Al3+, Cu2+, or Sn2+. UV/VIS spectra of the solubilized (in CHCl3) precipitates formed from NB and nitroxyl generated from AS in the presence of the iron, aluminum, copper, or tin salts were identical to those of their corresponding cupferron complexes.
