Free radicals are uncommonly potent reactive species that find utility in small molecule syntheses, redox chemistries and polymer production. The generation of these species can be readily induced via the UV or visible light irradiation of photosensitive compounds, allowing facile temporal and spatial control over radical-mediated reactions. Research within the Scott group is focused on exploiting the attributes of radicals for unique polymer fabrication and manipulation strategies to yield materials for biomedical devices, membrane separators and energy capture and storage media.
