Radicals play a major role as intermediates in many chemical reactions. They contribute to transformations in the atmosphere, living organisms, chemical synthesis, combustion and detonation amongst others. This comprehensive and conclusive book discusses all these aspects. N-centered Radicals deals with NOx and NCO, relatively stable radicals whose presence in the atmosphere influences the metabolism of living organisms. Also included are NHx, NCH and N3, important in radical studies, chemical synthesis, detonation and metabolism. Until now there has been no single volume bringing together all aspects of N-centered radical chemistry, from formation, to their chemistry in aqueous environments, biological systems and the atmosphere. N-centered Radicals is essential reading for researchers in organic, physical and environmental chemistry, biology and all others examining the effects of N-centered radicals.
