Abstract

In recent times, metal-free chemistry has received significant attention due to its inherent qualities and its potential savings in the costs of (i) reagents and (ii) environmental treatments of residues. In this context, recently developed neutral organic electron-donors have shown an ability to perform challenging
reductions that are traditionally the preserve of reactive metals and metal-based complexes, under mild reaction conditions. Hence, this feature article is aimed at describing the evolution of neutral organic super-electron-donors and their rapidly developing applications in electron-transfer reactions.
