Description - Organosilanes in Radical Chemistry by Chryssostomos Chatgilialoglu
In recent years silicon-centred radicals have played an important role in organic synthesis, polymer chemistry and material sciences. This book offers, for the first time, a description of silyl radicals within an interdisciplinary context, connecting structural characteristics and chemical properties to their application in different areas of chemistry. Silyl radicals have thoroughly penetrated areas as diverse as organic synthesis and material sciences, and this book surveys the most exciting aspects of their chemistry. Focusing on silyl radicals in the liquid phase, but including gas-phase data where appropriate, topics covered include: methods of formation, structural characteristics and thermodynamic data factors governing the reactivity of silicon hydrides the use of silicon hydrides as radical-based reducing agents and as mediators for consecutive radical reactions unimolecular reactions involving silyl radicals silyl radicals in polymers and materials radical-based functionalization of hydrogen terminated silicon surfaces.
Essential reading for anyone working in free radical and/or silicon chemistry, this book will also be of interest to organic, polymer and industrial chemists as well as for those who want to approach these fields for the first time.
