Reaction of Macroradicals

  • Raymond B. Seymour


Macroradicals, i.e., electron deficient polymers which may be designated as R·, have played an important role in the progress of animal and plant life since the beginning of time. Of course, the existence of naturally occurring or synthetic macroradicals was not recognized until the 1930’s but the existence of macroradicals was also not accepted by many outstanding organic chemists of that era.
