Free radical initiators chemical molecules which easily decompose into free radicals serve as reactive intermediates in synthetic methodologies such as organic and polymer synthesis as well as in technological processes, oligomerization, network formation, and kinetic research. The Handbook of Free Radical Initiators presents an up-to-date account of the physicochemical data on radical initiators and reactions of radical generation. Individual chapters include:
Dialkyl Peroxides and Hydroperoxides
Diacyl Peroxides, Peresters, and Organic Polyoxides
Bimolecular Reactions of Free Radical Generation by Ozone, Dioxygen, Hydroperoxides, and Haloid Molecules
Free Radical Abstraction Reactions
Free Radical Addition Reactions
Free Radical Recombination and Disproportoination Reactions
Professionals and academic researchers in chemical engineering, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, plastics, and rubbers will find the Handbook of Free Radical Initiators to be a distinguished, vital resource.
