Atom-transfer radical (ATR) reaction of alkenes with alkyl bromides under irradiation using a low-pressure Hg lamp give addition/reduction products 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.
