Pre-lab exercise for radical trap

Locate spectral parameters (g values, proton and nitrogen hyperfine coupling constants, solvent) for the product of the reaction between N-benzylidene-tert-butylamine N-oxide (the radical trap) and both dibenzoylperoxide and azobisisobutyronitrile. Make sketches of both spectra showing the number of peaks and assigning hyperfine coupling due to nitrogen and α-hydrogen. Do not submit copies of published spectra. Include references to the literature sources of the spectral data.
