About this book

The past twenty years have seen an explosion of interest in free radicals as their pivotal role in both chemistry and biology has come to light. From their beneficial role in the manufacture of plastics to their detrimental effects on the Earth's ozone layer, radical reactions impact significantly on our daily lives. "An Introduction to Free Radical Chemistry" provides a concise introduction to free radical chemistry from an organic chemistry perspective, highlighting the importance of radical, radical anion and radical cation reactions in synthesis.

The book provides a step-wise introduction to the subject, taking the student from the basic principles of radical reactions through to their applications in industry and their role in biological and environmental processes. With case studies to illustrate reactions in landmark syntheses and problems (with outline answers) to test the reader's understanding, this textbook is suitable for advanced level undergraduates and postgraduates in chemistry and biochemistry. It will also be invaluable for research level scientists requiring and update in the area.
