Abstract

Compounds with strong absorptions in the ultraviolet (UV) region of the spectrum, particularly the UVA and UVB, have seen much interest as UV screeners or absorbers in a wide variety of commercial products. A series of benzisoxazole 2-oxides have been synthesized and characterized by UV-vis spectroscopy. A number of derivatives have been shown to posses moderate to strong molar absorption coefficients in the UVB range (ca. 300 nm), the strongest being those derived from benzophenones. Three other derivatives containing additional electron withdrawing groups showed strong molar absorption coefficients in the UVA (ca. 340 nm). Solvent effects on the parent derivatives show changes in the molar absorption coefficients with little changes in the λmax values. Preliminary studies of these compounds as potential additives to prevent photooxidation of polystyrene showed considerable inhibition of polymer degradation with the parent unsubstituted benzisoxazole 2-oxide compounds being the most effective.
