A nitroxide biradical 2,6-dioxy-2,6-diaza-1,1,3,3,5,5,7,7-octamethyldicyclopentano[b;e]pyridine (1) and the corresponding monoradical (2-oxy-6-hydroxy) were prepared starting from 2,2,5,5-tetramethyl-3-oxopyrrolidine by successive condensation with formaldehyde (KOH) or DMF (K in THF), NH4OAc and oxidation (Na2WO4-H2O2). In ethanol, biradical 1 shows a quintet (|J| ≫ |aN| = 14.6 G). In frozen ethanol solution, the experimental spectra (X-band at 120 K and 240 GHz at 7, 15 and 25 K) can be computer simulated with the following parameters: D = -64 G; E = 1 G; gxx = 2.0093; gyy = 2.0064; gzz = 2.0020; Axx = Ayy = 8 G; Azz = 32.2 G. From the temperature dependence of the high-field spectra, D is found to be negative.
