Free Radicals in Heterocycle Functionalization

Chapter
Part of the Topics in Heterocyclic Chemistry book series (TOPICS, volume 54)

Abstract

Functionalization of heterocycles through free radical intermediates has been widely employed in a diverse array of synthetic transformations. This chapter focuses on the recent developments in the light-assisted as well as traditional free radical generation methodology and the subsequent utilization in functionalization of various heterocycles.

Keywords

Alkylation Arylation Cross-dehydrogenative coupling Free radicals Heterocycles Minisci reaction Photocatalysis
