Radicals formed in γ-irradiated 1,3,5-trithiane (TT) and its three derivatives, α- and β-2,4,6-trimethyl-1,3,5-trithiane (α-TMT and β-TMT), and 2,4,6-trimethyl-2,4,6-triphenyl-1,3,5-trithiane (TMTPT), were studied by the electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) method in the solid state. The sulfur radical cations (>S+•) were identified in all compounds at 77 K. In TT and its two derivatives, α-TMT and β-TMT, the >S+• decay via deprotonation-forming C-centered radicals. Further increase of temperature up to 293 K results in the appearance of thiyl-type radicals (RS•). In TMTPT, the >S+• are stable up to 250 K. They formed the intermolecularly three-electron-bonded dimeric radical cations (S∴S)+ while RS• radicals were not observed. Some of the radical assignments and their EPR parameters (g and a hyperfine splittings) obtained support from the DFT calculations.
