Abstract

For many years, the reputed lack of selectivity in some free-radical reactions has resulted in this class of reaction being overlooked in the stereoselective synthesis of important target molecules. More recently, however, the situation has changed as new and milder methods of radical generation have been developed, which have helped researchers to gain a better understanding of the key factors that influence selectivity in radical transformations. As a consequence, the use of radicals in stereoselective synthesis is increasing and there are a number of important intra- and intermolecular additions, where high levels of stereoselectivity have been achieved in the formation of carbon-carbon bonds.
