Curved Arrow

Postby fernandofine » Tue Feb 23, 2016 5:24 pm

Could someone provide an example of when a half curved arrow would be used?

I know it signifies the transfer of only one e-, but I can't think of a reaction where that would take place.

Thanks

This page may be helpful. It shows a few examples in which the half curved arrow is used.

A reaction in which you would need to use a half curved arrow would be when you have a radical, or an atom with a single unpaired electron, involved in the reaction
