A comparison of methods for measuring relative radical stabilities of carbon-centred radicals

Coote, Michelle; Lin, Ching-Yeh; Beckwith, Athelstan (Athel); Zavistas, Andreas


This article discusses and compares various methods for defining and measuring radical stability, including the familiar radical stabilization energy (RSE), along with some lesser-known alternatives based on corrected carbon-carbon bond energies, and more direct measures of the extent of radical delocalisation. As part of this work, a large set of R-H, R-CH3, R-Cl and R-R BDEs (R = CH2X, CH(CH3)X, C(CH3) 2X and X = H, BH2, CH3, NH2, OH, F, SiH3, PH2, SH, Cl, Br, N(CH3)2, NHCH3, NHCHO, NHCOCH3,...[Show more]
