Synthetic chemistry via radicals generated by photoinduced electron transfer
Radical cations generated by photoinduced electron transfer often undergo a fragmentation fast enough to compete with back electron transfer. In this way, radicals are generated. Examples of the chemistry of benzyl and alkyl radicals under these conditions are given.
