Radical Chemistry

Information and resources on radicals and radical reactions.


In chemistry a radical is a atom, molecule or ion with unpaired electrons, which are usually highly reactive. A radical reaction is any chemical reaction involving radicals.

As reactants they play in various other chemical reactions - such as the polymerization and in certain substitution reactions - a decisive role.

Other areas, in which radicals participate, are combustion reactions, photochemistry, the production of plastics, atmospheric chemistry, biological systems etc.

In the following list you will find online available information on the chemistry of radicals and their reactions.

Reagents for Radical and Radical Ion Chemistry

Radicals and radical ions are important intermediates with wide use in organic synthesis. The first book to concentrate on reagents for the creation and use of radicals and radical ions, this new volume in the Handbooks of Reagents for Organic Synthesis series compiles articles taken from the e-eros database, on reagents for use in radical and radical chemistry, to help the chemist in the lab choose the right reagents. Reflecting the enormous growth of radical chemistry over the past ten years, this is an essential guide for all synthetic chemists.
