4-Hydroxy-TEMPO or TEMPOL, formally 4-hydroxy-2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidin-1-oxyl, is a heterocyclic compound. Like the related TEMPO, it is used as a catalyst and chemical oxidant. In medicine, it is recognized as an agent for detoxifying reactive oxygen species. It catalyses the disproportionation of superoxide.[1]
