As cheap, environmentally friendly, easily handled strong oxidants, persulfates have been widely used in organic synthesis. It is well known that persulfates may decompose to sulfate radical anions (SO4) under heating, light irradiation or transition-metal reductive conditions. Studies indicate that the sulfate radical anion is a powerful single-electron oxidant, which can oxidize a variety of neutral molecules and anions to give the corresponding radicals. The new generated radicals can further undergo a series of chemical transformations to provide structurally diverse and useful compounds. Recent radical reactions promoted by persulfates are summarized. The full text contains five parts. In the first and second parts, recent advance in the radical cyclization reactions and functionalization of C-H bonds promoted by persulfates is discussed. The third part introduced the persulfates-mediated photocatalytic reactions. The fourth part emphasized persulfates-promoted other free radical reactions. Finally, some perspectives on the future development of this chemistry are given.

Key words: persulfates, sulfate radical anions, radical, cyclization, C—H functionalization
