Reaction mechanisms

Part (i) Radical and radical ion reactions

Author affiliations


This chapter examines, from a mechanistic perspective, the major advances in the area of radical and radical ion chemistry reported in 2009. Fundamental classes of radical/radical ion processes are presented (substitution and atom transfer, addition, and fragmentation). The creative design and implementation of multistep (cascading) radical processes in organic synthesis provides new tools for the preparation compounds of incredible structural diversity, and this chapter concludes with some recent examples.
