Pulse radiolysis studies of the reactions between balofloxacin (BFX) and eaq ? , hydroxyl radical (˙OH), and N3 · were carried out to investigate the photosensitive toxicity of BFX. The BFX radical anion formed in the reaction of BFX with eaq ? was located at 380 nm. The transient species formed in the reaction of BFX with ˙OH radical were located in the region of 370 nm to 580 nm, with a maximum λmax at 390 nm. The BFX radical cation was obtained by reacting BFX with N3˙, and showed an absorption band at around 365 nm. The UV-Vis absorption of the BFX was found to be clearly dependent on pH. The pKa value of BFX was estimated to be 6.0±0.2. Under neutral conditions, the rate constants of BFX reacting with N3˙ and eaq ? were determined to be 1.3×1010 dm3·mol?1·s?1 and 1.4×1010 dm3·mol?1·s?1, respectively.
