This book describes carbon-hydrogen bond formations in aqueous media via radical reactions with a specific focus on Hydrogen Atom Transfer.
V. Tamara Perchyonok is currently a Research Fellow at the School of Chemistry Centre for Green Chemistry at Monash University. Her research interests cover Analytical, Nano and Organic Chemistry with a specialization in free radical chemistry, green analytical chemistry, molecular recognition and polymer chemistry. She also lectures on heterocyclic chemistry and drug synthesis. Previous research appointments include: Marie Curie Senior Research Fellow at ISOF, CNR (Bologna, Italy); Senior Researcher (Chirogen PTY. Ltd., The University of Melbourne), and DFG Post Doctoral Fellow (LMU, Munich, Germany). Her research there covered both academic and commercial aspects of bio-compatible free radical chemistry via experimental and computational approaches. Her current research includes three broad areas of the development and commercialization of novel aspects of green analytical chemistry, synthesis and applications of novel nano-materials and bio-compatible free radical chemistry. The overall aim is to develop alternative and recyclable technology to facilitate the conversion of bio-actives from waste materials into value added and specialty chemicals, as well as the development of novel areas of green bio-compatible free radical chemistry.
