Stable radicals are of intense fundamental interest because they challenge conventional bonding paradigms, and they find a wide range of uses ranging from organic and polymer synthesis to biological and medicinal applications to materials science. Yet the directed synthesis and study of stable radicals for either fundamental or applied purposes are rarely pursued strategies. This Award Lecture describes my research group's efforts in exploratory and targeted research focusing on stable radical design.
