Dialkylzincs in Radical Reactions
Keywords:Conjugate addition, Dialkylzinc, Imines, Radical addition, Radical initiator, Radical-polar crossover reactions
AbstractThis review describes recent developments in the use of dialkylzincs in radical reactions. In most of the processes reported therein, dialkylzincs act simultaneously as sources of alkyl radicals, as Lewis acids, and as chain transfer agents. A parallel is drawn with the behaviour of trialkylboranes in similar reactions.
