Half a century of free radical chemistry by Derek H. R Barton( Book )

15 editions published in 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book describes the experience over 25 years of the senior author with the chemistry of organic free radicals. It begins with a mechanistic study of industrial importance on the pyrolysis of chlorinated alkanes. It continues with a theory on the biosynthesis of phenolate derived alkaloids involving phenolate radical coupling. There follows 20 years of practical work to prove the theory correct, especially in the case of morphine alkaloids. The book then describes the work on nitrile photolysis (Barton reaction) which involved the invention of new radical chemistry leading to a simple synthesis of the important hormone, aldosterone. There follows a description of the invention of an important new method for the deoxygenation of biologically important molecules, especially sugars and nucleosides, using radical chemistry applied to thiocarbonyl derivatives. Some years later, in a logical extension to carboxylic acids, another new reaction was invented which provides carbon, nitrogen, oxygen and other radicals under mild conditions. A final chapter summarizes recent applications of thiocarbonyl group derived radical reactions by other authors

5 editions published between 1982 and 2013 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

R.B. Woodward, Professor of Science at Harvard University, who died in July 1979, was generally considered to be the greatest organic chemist of modern times. He was one of the founders of Tetrahedron and Tetrahedron Letters and this volume, containing papers from over 50 of the world's leading organic chemists, is dedicated to his memory. The contents cover all areas of modern organic chemistry and therefore present a synopsis of current research in this area of science
