Volume . Free Radical Chain Reactions in Organic Synthesis

Published: 22nd October 2013 Series Editors: Alan Katritzky O. Meth-Cohn C. Rees Authors: William Motherwell David Crich

Written for both the experienced practitioner and the newcomer, this book provides essential guidance to the practical aspects of free radical chain reactions. The book presents tried and tested synthetic schemes as well as a selection of recently developed methods describing rationally designed, highly efficient syntheses giving high yield interconversions of functional groups and carbon*b1carbon bond formation under mild, neutral conditions.

Written by two experienced practitioners in the field, this volume explodes the myth that free radicals are highly reactive, non-selective intermediates.
