Radical Substitution Reactions

In free radical halogenation reactions radical substitution takes place with halogen reagents and alkane substrates. Another important class of radical substitutions involve aryl radicals. One example is the hydroxylation of benzene by Fenton's reagent. Many oxidation and reduction reactions in organic chemistry have free radical intermediates, for example the oxidation of aldehydes to carboxylic acids with chromic acid. Coupling reactions can also be considered radical substitutions. Certain aromatic substitutions takes place by radical-nucleophilic aromatic substitution. Auto-oxidation is a process responsible for deterioration of paints and food and lab hazards such as diethyl ether peroxide.

More radical substitutions are listed below:

  • The Barton-McCombie deoxygenation is a way to substitute a hydroxyl group for a proton.
  • The Wohl-Ziegler reaction involves the allylic bromination of alkenes.
  • The Hunsdiecker reaction converts silver salts of carboxylic acids to alkyl halides.
  • The Dowd-Beckwith reaction involves ring expansion of cyclic β-keto esters.
  • The Barton reaction involves synthesis of nitrosoalcohols from nitrites.
  • The Minisci reaction involves generation of an alkyl radical from a carboxylic acid and a silver salt and subsequent substitution at an aromatic compound

Famous quotes containing the words reactions, radical and/or substitution:

    Cuteness in children is totally an adult perspective. The children themselves are unaware that the quality exists, let alone its desirability, until the reactions of grownups inform them.
    Leontine Young (20th century)

    What makes it so plausible to assume that hypocrisy is the vice of vices is that integrity can indeed exist under the cover of all other vices except this one. Only crime and the criminal, it is true, confront us with the perplexity of radical evil; but only the hypocrite is really rotten to the core.
    Hannah Arendt (1906–1975)

    To play is nothing but the imitative substitution of a pleasurable, superfluous and voluntary action for a serious, necessary, imperative and difficult one. At the cradle of play as well as of artistic activity there stood leisure, tedium entailed by increased spiritual mobility, a horror vacui, the need of letting forms no longer imprisoned move freely, of filling empty time with sequences of notes, empty space with sequences of form.
    Max J. Friedländer (1867–1958)
