Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: The addition of H-E (E= -SR, -P(O)(OR)2 or -P(O)R2) to the carbon-carbon double bonds in lipids is a way to create new materials: lubricants, additives, polymers. In the current chapter, the radical addition of thiols (E= SR) and H-phosphonates (E= P(O)(OR)2) will be reviewed in detail. The kinetics of the reactions is discussed. The use of the reactions to introduce different functional groups and the way to synthesize various functional materials is presented.
