Although not formally terminating the radical chain, the phenoxyl radicals, tend to be less reactive in a biological matrix than are peroxyl radicals, and the process of peroxidation is slowed. Evidence for the reduction of the tocopheroxyl radical by ascorbate (vitamin C) or GSH in vitro has been reported, but efforts to determine the possible significance of redox cycling regeneration of vitamin E in vivo thus far have been inconclusive (Liebler, 1993). The tocopheroxyl radical can transfer another electron to a lipid peroxyl radical or add a peroxyl radical to generate the corresponding 8a-(alkyldioxy)tocopherones in reactions that represent true terminations of the radical chains (Liebler, 1993).
