The higher ratio of ionic to radical products from iodide 8a has proven to be general for iodides compared with the corresponding bromides. It is surprising since the more electronegative Br• might be expected to undergo electron transfer to the ion pair more readily than I• (Scheme 2). The observed trend apparently reflects a higher rate of diffusion from the radical pair cage relative to the rate of electron transfer for the lighter bromine atom. As expected, the ratio of ionic to radical products is also dependent on the ionization potential of the alkyl radical R•.

27 Interconversion occurred from either isomer with a quantum yield greater than unity, consistent with a mechanism analogous to that of Scheme 3. Also formed was the reduction product 83. 28 Ionic products are not formed, even in nucleophilic solvents. Except at the anomeric position, carbohydrates form carbocations with difficulty because of the large number of electron-withdrawing oxygen atoms. 29 Solvolysis of iodide 86 afforded only longifolene (87) and longicyclene (88), with none of the transannular elimination product 89.
