    Earlier chapters in this book describe radical formation from reaction of various carbo­hy­drate derivatives. Among the reactions of these radicals is addition to unsaturated compounds. The current chapter builds on earlier ones in that the discussion of radical addition reactions continues, but the focus in the present chapter is less on how radicals are formed and more on the pro­cess of their addition to compounds with carbon–carbon multiple bonds.
