Free Radical Telomerization focuses on the scattered theory, experimental work, and technology of free radical telomerization.
This book begins by discussing the theory and general features of telomerization, free radical reactivities, and kinetics, followed by a systematic catalog of the chemistry and quantitative behavior of individual telogens. This text concludes with a presentation on cotelomerization. The telomerization reactions mediated by species other than free radicals are not covered. Other topics include the catalysis of chain transfer with transition metal salts, abstraction chain transfer activity of halo compounds, radical rearrangements during telomerization, and phosphorus compounds as telogens.
This publication is recommended for chemists interested in free radical telomerization.
