Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Stable radicals - molecules with odd electrons which are sufficiently long lived to be studied or isolated using conventional techniques - have enjoyed a long history and are of current interest for a broad array of fundamental and applied reasons, for example to study and drive novel chemical reactions, in the development of rechargeable batteries or the study of free radical reactions in the body.

In Stable Radicals: Fundamentals and Applied Aspects of Odd-Electron Compounds a team of international experts provide a broad-based overview of stable radicals, from the fundamental aspects of specific classes of stable neutral radicals to their wide range of applications including synthesis, materials science and chemical biology. Topics covered include:triphenylmethyl and related radicalspolychlorinated triphenylmethyl radicals: towards multifunctional molecular materialsphenalenyls, cyclopentadienyls, and other carbon-centered radicalsthe nitrogen oxides: persistent radicals and van der Waals complex dimersnitroxide radicals: properties, synthesis and applicationsthe only stable organic sigma radicals: di-tert-alkyliminoxyls.delocalized radicals containing the hydrazyl [R2N-NR] unitmetal-coordinated phenoxyl radicalsstable radicals containing the thiazyl unit: synthesis, chemical, and materials propertiesstable radicals of the heavy p-block elementsapplication of stable radicals as mediators in living-radical polymerizationnitroxide-catalyzed alcohol oxidations in organic synthesismetal-nitroxide complexes: synthesis and magneto-structural correlationsrechargeable batteries using robust but redox-active organic radicalsspin labeling: a modern perspectivefunctional in vivo EPR spectroscopy and imaging using nitroxides and trityl radicalsbiologically relevant chemistry of nitroxides

Stable Free Radicals: Fundamentals and Applied Aspects of Odd-Electron Compounds is an essential guide to this fascinating area of chemistry for researchers and students working in organic and physical chemistry and materials science.
