A new radical-sensitive caging technique releases a caged molecule under lipid peroxidation conditions. In a competitive oxidation study with a model lipid, methyl linoleate, the oxidatively releasable xanthenyl caging groups is found to be 1.93 ± 0.55 times more reactive than the lipid model compound.
