Atom-transfer radical (ATR) reactions of alkenes with R-X usually give products having new C-C and C-X bonds at the adjacent carbons. However, when the reaction was carried out under irradiation using a low-pressure Hg lamp, addition/reduction products were obtained in good yield. Hydrogen bromide, formed by H-abstraction of a bromine radical from alkenes, is likely to play a key role in the reductive ATR reaction.
