Domino processes involving radical reactions have attracted a lot of attention due to their intrinsic elegance and the construction of a broad and sometimes unique array of molecular architectures they allow in a single step. This chapter focuses on the recent progress in the design and development of this field. The first part is devoted to radical/cation domino processes; the second part provides the latest examples for the radical/anionic domino processes. The next two parts cover domino processes involving both radical/radical and radical/pericyclic reactions. Finally, the last part focuses on asymmetric version of radical domino reactions involving both chiral auxiliary and chiral catalysts.
