In this study, a series of core units (glycerol, triethanolamine and triisopropanolamine derivatives) were investigated for their use in tri-armed phenolic antioxidants. The antioxidant ability of these tri-armed phenolic compounds featuring different core units were then evaluated in a hydrocarbon lubricant using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and compared to the commercially available antioxidants Irganox L135 and Irganox L57. An impressive oxidation induction time of ca. 9-12 minutes was observed for the glycerol based antioxidants when compared to the commercial antioxidants (ca. 4-6 minutes), whereas in contrast in the case of triethanolamine and triisopropanolamine derived antioxidants, a solubilising unit was incorporated in order to provide appropriate solubility within the hydrocarbon medium and revealed an excellent oxidation induction time of ca. 11-12 minutes.
