Outcome-changing effect of polarity reversal in hydrogen-atom-abstraction reactions

Chan, Bun; Easton, Christopher J.; Radom, Leo


We have examined hydrogen-atom-abstraction reactions for combinations of electrophilic/nucleophilic radicals with electrophilic/nucleophilic substrates. We find that reaction between an electrophilic radical and a nucleophilic substrate is relatively favorable, and vice versa, but the reactions between a radical and a substrate that are both electrophilic or both nucleophilic are relatively unfavorable, consistent with the literature reports of Roberts. As a result, the regioselectivity for the...[Show more]
