The use of DTBP as radical initiator and a copper salt as promoter enables the preparation of allylic alcohol, benzyl, and alkane derivatives via a radical mechanism. The C(sp3)-H bond in various alcohols, toluene derivatives, and alkanes were successfully alkenylated with β-nitrostyrenes to yield the desired products in good yields.
