The influence of steric effects on the addition of alkyl radicals to alkenes important in polymerizations can be investigated by the method of competition kinetics. Cyclohexyl radicals add to α- and β-substituted acrylic acid esters at different rates—a confirmation of the model (1) obtained by calculations for the transition state of this type of reaction.
