Free radicals are highly versatile reaction intermediates which allow many syntheses to be carried out under relatively mild conditions. The discovery of the first free radical, nearly 100 years ago, opened up a whole new and exciting area of organic synthesis, and free radical chemistry is still developing rapidly today. An essential guide to understanding this topic, Free Radicals in Organic Chemistry provides:

∗ an excellent first introduction to the structure, formation and reactivity of free radicals

∗ examples of organic reaction pathways which utilize free radicals

∗ detailed accounts of the most recent developments within the field

∗ an overview of the varied applications of free radicals within organic chemistry

∗ extensive references to direct the reader to further literature

Written by experienced teachers in organic chemistry, Free Radicals in Organic Chemistry will be an essential text for students and researchers working in the fields of organic synthesis, biochemistry, environmental chemistry, materials science and medicine.
