Organoselenium Compounds as Precursor of Radicals

Pp. 94-119 (26)

Jarosław Lewkowski


Radical reactions with the participation of selenium compounds have been described here in the point of view of the source of selenium radicals. Consequently, the following groups have been reviewed: alkyl phenyl selenides, acyl phenyl selenides, imidoyl phenyl selenides, benzeneselenol and other selenides as the source of radicals.

The chapter covers the literature from early 90s until 2012.


Radicals, Selenides, Stannanes, Silanes, Diselenides, Addition, Cyclization, Coupling, Stereoselectivity, Regioselectivity.
