Covers the most advanced computational and experimental methodsfor studying carbon-centered radical intermediates With its focus on the chemistry of carbon-centered radicals andradical cations, this book helps readers fully exploit thesynthetic utility of these intermediates in order to prepare finechemicals and pharmaceutical products. Moreover, it helps readersbetter understand their role in complex atmospheric reactions andbiological systems. Thoroughly up to date, the book highlights themost advanced computational and experimental methods available forstudying and using these critically important intermediates. Carbon-Centered Free Radicals and Radical Cations begins with ashort history of the field of free radical chemistry, and thencovers: * A discussion of the relevant theory * Mechanistic chemistry, with an emphasis on synthetic utility * Molecular structure and mechanism, focusing on computationalmethods * Spectroscopic investigations of radical structure and kinetics,including demonstrations of spin chemistry techniques such as CIDNPand magnetic field effects * Free radical chemistry in macromolecules Each chapter, written by one or more leading experts, explainsdifficult concepts clearly and concisely, with references tofacilitate further investigation of individual topics. The authorswere selected in order to provide insight into a broad range oftopics, including small molecule synthesis, polymer degradation,computational chemistry as well as highly detailed experimentalwork in the solid, liquid, and gaseous states. This volume is essential for students or researchers interestedin building their understanding of the role of carbon-centeredradical intermediates in complex systems and how they may be usedto develop a broad range of useful products.
