The past twenty years has seen an explosion of interest in free radica ls as their pivotal role in both chemistry and biology has come to lig ht. This introductory textbook aims to capture this excitement for adv anced level undergraduates, with particular emphasis on the importance of radical reactions in organic synthesis. The book provides a gentle , stepwise introduction to the subject, taking the student from the ba sic principles of radical reactions through to their applications in i ndustry and their role in biological and environmental processes, allo wing the relevance of the subject to be grasped more easily. Suitable for advanced level undergraduates and postgraduates in chemistry and b iochemistry, the book will also be invaluable for research level scien tists requiring an update in the area.
