Modern radical chemistry

Prof. Huan-Ming Huang, ShanghaiTech University

Radical chemistry has been established as a staple of organic chemistry, with new branches currently emerging and flourishing. Particularly, this is thanks to the rapid development of photoredox chemistry and electrosynthesis. In recent years, radical chemistry has also become a popular modern synthetic tool that is widely used in medicinal chemistry and material science. This thematic issue will be a collection of state-of-the-art research in this continuously growing area. The aim is to highlight the most important areas of modern radical chemistry and to direct the reader towards new concepts and future developments.

Potential topics for submitted manuscripts include, but are not limited to:

  • Photoredox chemistry
  • Electrosynthesis
  • Cooperative catalysis
  • Transition metal-catalyzed radical reactions
  • Enantioselective radical transformations
  • Radical polymerization
  • Radical chemistry in pharmaceutical science
  • Radical chemistry in material science

Submission deadline: June 15, 2023
