The Generation of Hydroxymethyl Radicals: Photoinduced Electron Transfer as Opposed to Electrochemical Electron Transfer
The intermolecular addition of hydroxy(alkoxy)methyl radicals to electron-poor double bonds is of strategic importance for organic synthesis. The reason is that these functions can thus be introduced in the form of the umpoled hydroxy(alkoxy)methyl anion synthons.
