Srikrishna, A (1987) Radical cyclizations in the synthesis of natural products. In: Current Science, 56 (9). pp. 392-396.
Organic chemists have began to use intramolecular radical addition reactions i.e. radical cyclization to develop useful synthetic transformations.The mild reactions conditions and the observed selectivities made these radical cyclizaiona a viable alternative to the conventional polar reactions.Applicatin of polar radical cyclization strategy to various natural products like sesquiterpenes (sativenes,agarofuransm,hirsutene,capnellenes,silphiperfolene, seychellene,patchoulli alcohol),marine deterpene isoamijiol, pyrrolizidine alkaloids. (dehydrohastanecine,heliotridine,hastanecine), by various organic chemists demonstrates the versatility of this relatively new area in organic synthesis.
