Tin-free radical chemistry using the persistent radical effect: alkoxyamine isomerization, addition reactions and polymerizations.

Author information

  • 1Department of Chemistry, Philipps-University Marburg, 35032 Marburg, Germany.


In this tutorial review applications of alkoxyamines as C-radical precursors for the conduction of tin-free radical reactions are presented. These processes are controlled by the Persistent Radical Effect. A brief introduction on the Persistent Radical Effect is provided. In addition, the use of microwave irradiation to conduct thermal radical reactions is discussed. Finally, the use of alkoxyamines as initiators/mediators for the controlled/living radical polymerization is highlighted.
