Abstract

The outstanding difference between the reactivities of saturated and unsaturated hydrocarbon radicals can be rationalized in terms of the characteristic geometry of the tight transition state and high forward and reverse activation barriers along the reaction coordinate on the potential energy surface, as shown in the schematic representation.
