Radical Chemistry & Metalloradical Catalysis

Since the historical report on “Triphenylmethyl: An Instance of Trivalent Carbon” by Gomberg, the field of radical chemistry has advanced significantly. Due to the mild reaction conditions, high functional group tolerance and high chemoselectivity radical reactions are becoming viable alternative to it’s ionic counterpart. However, taming organic radicals in required extent is still a challenging task. Part of my research group will be working on the development of new metalloradical promoted catalytic stereoselective radical reactions and understanding the reaction mechanism utilizing both modern synthetic techniques and computational tools.
