Explanation:
I suppose it is a chemical text... Free Radical: A molecule which posseses an incomplete shell of valency electrons, does not carry an electrical charge, and is not a free ion. Such a radical usually possesses considerable additive properties and is very reactive. The free radical is one of the most important intermediates in may organic reactions.
