Abstract Single crystals of 1-[2,4,6-tri(tert-butyl)phenyl]-2-phenylphosphaethene (PPPE) and of 2D- and 13C-enriched PPPE were studied by ESR after X-ray irradiation. Two phosphorus-centered radicals were trapped in the crystals. The first one was characterized by its 31P, 1H-, and 13C-hyperfine tensors, the second one exhibited coupling with 31P only. Comparison of these parameters with those predicted by ab initio calculations on some phosphinyl species indicates that these two radicals probably result, on the one hand, from an addition of a H-atom to the C-atom of the PC bond and, on the other, from a cyclization of the parent molecule. The proposed mechanisms are consistent with the mutual orientations of the hyperfine eigenvectors and bond directions in the undamaged molecule. A C-centered radical which results from an addition of a H-atom to the P-atom of the phosphaethylene bond is also detected.
