Stereochemistry of Radical Reactions: Concepts, Guidelines, and Synthetic Applications

Front Cover
Wiley, Jun 11, 1996 - Science - 280 pages
As little as a decade ago, radicals were regarded as interesting reactive intermediates with little synthetic use. However, recent results show that radicals have an enormous potential for applications in stereoselective reactions - it's all a matter of knowing what method to use and how to apply it.

Three world experts in the field have combined their expertise and present the concepts to understand and even to predict the course of stereoselective radical reactions. In addition, guidelines are established which will enable the readers to plan and carry out their own stereoselective syntheses with radicals. A comprehensive list of references provides an easy access to the primary literature.

The Stereochemistry of Radical Reactions is a highly topical introduction to this burgeoning field of research. Both advanced students and researchers active in the field will welcome this book as a source of concepts and ideas.
