The radical reaction of alcohols with alkenes-1 proceeds at both carbon atoms of the double bond. As a result, a mixture of the two 1 ∶ 1 adducts, consisting chiefly of the addition products of the alcohol at the CH2 group, with a small content (4–13%) of the addition product at the CH group, is formed.
