The importance of chain conformational mobility during 5-exo-cyclizations of C-, N- and O-centred radicals
MetadataShow full item record
The reaction coordinates of an archetypical set of 5-exo cyclizations of C-, N- and O-centred radicals were investigated by computational methods. G4 theory, and DFT with the um062x functional, were able to rationalise counterintuitive factors such as the 'normal' order of rate constants being: N-centred
