The Role of Free Radicals in Organometallic Catalysis

  • Jack Halpern
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (ASIC, volume 257)

Abstract

A variety of reactions of metal complexes, reflecting the characteristic weakness of many metal-carbon, metal-hydrogen and metal-metal bonds, result in the formation of carbon-centered and/or metal-centered free radicals. Such reactions play important roles in many catalytic processes including coenzyme B12-dependent enzymic reactions. The mechanistic aspects of such processes are discussed.
