Paper Abstract

We present the experimental results of three laser initiated free-radical reactions. As one might expect, each reaction exhibits a wavelength dependence, but the mechanisms for each are not intuitively obvious. In all three examples, photochemical induction followed by thermal propagation results in higher conversions with fewer by-products when compared to strictly thermal synthetic routes.
