Title of the idea: Radical reaction of benzylic ROMgX with alpha,beta unsaturated olefines
Author of the idea: Ramesha
Email of the author
Key words for search: Grignard, AIBN, Cyanide, nitro
Explain briefly the idea

The benzyllic intermediate ROMgX during Grignard reaction can be radically trapped with alpha,beta-unsaturated cyanides/ketones/nitrocompounds.
One can also try basic condition. There might be a possibility of O/C reaction
