Radical and Radical Ion Reactivity in Nucleic Acid Chemistry
The chemistry and biochemistry of reactive intermediates is central to modern mechanistic and quantitative understanding of organic chemistry and biochemistry. It underlies a significant portion of modern synthetic chemistry and is integral to a molecular view of biological chemistry.
