The mechanistic fate of alkenyl α-nitroalkyl free radicals generated in the following reactions has been studied: SRN1 reactions between α-bromonitro compounds and nucleophiles, reductive reactions between α-substituted nitro compounds and tri-n-butyltin(IV)hydride (Bu3SnH) or 1,4-dihydro-N-benzylnicotinamide (BNAH), oxidative reactions between alkenyl nitronate anions and nucleophiles and the photolytic rearrangement of α-iodonitro compounds have all been studied.
