This page lists the learning units from the topic "Radical Reactions" in a reasonable order with regard to contents.

Radical Reactions

Radicals - Introduction Level 120 min.

This learning unit is an introduction to the structure and chemical reactions of free radicals. 

Radical Chain Reaction Level 215 min.

This learning unit is a short introduction to radical chain reactions. 

Radical Substitution Reactions Level 220 min.

This learning unit describes radical substitutions and their mechanism. 

Halogenation of Alkanes Level 230 min.

This learning unit describes the principles, kinetics, and thermodynamics of the radical halogenation of alkanes and it explains the reasons for the different chemical properties of the halogens fluorine, chlorine, bromine, and iodine in radical substitution reactions. 

Radical Additions and Substitutions with Alkenes Level 240 min.

This learning unit describes the radical addition and radical substitution with alkenes. The mechanisms, thermodynamics, kinetics as well as the different reactivity and selectivity of several reagents and the special characterisitcs of benzylic and allylic positions are explained. 

Birch Reduction Level 215 min.

This learning unit describes the selective partial reduction of aromatic compounds to 1,4-cyclohexadienes by sodium in liquid ammonia, called Birch reduction. In addition, it explains the selective partial reduction of alkynes to trans alkenes by sodium in liquid ammonia.
