FORMATION OF RADICALS Organic chemistry consists of reactions in which bonds are broken and new ones are formed. A simple single bond consists of two electrons with opposite spins: A ! ) A ! ) A ! ) A ! B A+ + B! A! + B+ A + B heterolytic cleavage heterolytic cleavage homolytic cleavage The charged species indicated in reactions (1) and (2) are usually not free ions, but carry only partial charges and are only present in the transition state. Due to their developing charges these reactions are affected by the polarity of the solvent.

Some radicals like the hydroxyl radical react with most molecules at close to diffusion controlled rates (1010M-1s-1). This means that the @OH reacts at almost every collision. There are however some not-able exceptions to this rule of high reactivity. The triphenylmethyl radical is highly stable (it can be kept in a test tube). , the unpairedelectron is not localized at a specific atom, but is spread over a large molecular domain. Due to its stability the triphenylmethyl radical was the first radical to be discovered by Gomberg [2] without the use of today’s sophisticated analytical instrumentation.

Cu2+ CH3 In this reductive elimination the transfer of an electron and the elimination proceed in a concerted fashion. EDTA [58] and Cr2+ [59] also have been found to be effective in reductive elimination. 32 33 Chapter 3 CHEMISTRY OF OXYGEN-DERIVED RADICALS ... the paradox underlying all scientific advances: namely, that scientists love to do experiments that show their colleagues wrong. Robert Pollack in “Signs of Life” [60] A. HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE Before I discuss the formation and reactions of reactive oxygen metabolites (ROMs), I would like to point out some important milestones in the history of oxygen radical and reactive oxygen metabolite research.
