Studies of aminyl radicals
thesisposted on 13.10.2017 by Hitesh Shah
In order to distinguish essays and pre-prints from academic theses, we have a separate category. These are often much longer text based documents than a paper.
This section contains a brief overview of alkyl radicals in synthesis and methods for their generation. The aminyl radical section gives a brief description of the nature of the radical and then proceeds with general techniques used, or now abandoned, for aminyl radical formation. It also reviews amidyl, aminium cation and Lewis acid metal complexed aminyl radicals describing their superiority over neutral aminyl radicals. Various methodologies are also described using aminyl radicals in the synthesis of heterocyclic and natural products. [Continues.]
