Alkyl radicals are key intermediates in a variety of important processes occurring in aqueous solutions, e.g. biological processes, advanced oxidation processes, catalytic processes, photochemical processes of importance in solar energy conversion, environmental processes, electrochemical processes, etc. This chapter outlines the major routes to the formation of alkyl radicals, their general chemical properties, and their mechanisms of reaction in solutions and at the surfaces of immersed metals and of suspended nanoparticles.
