Might think about relabeling this thingEdit

One-electron chemistry is bigger than organic synthesis. Most metals really only undergo 1e changes. Possibly the article could be relabeled as "dissolving metal reduction," which is currently a redirect. This would include Birch, Bouveault-Blanc, maybe Wurtz. Other bits should redistributed into various new homes such as radical reaction, single electron transfer, Atom-transfer radical-polymerization. --Smokefoot (talk) 16:29, 15 December 2013 (UTC)

Something needs to be done. There's also Solvated_electron and Electride, which could be considered the reactive species for these processes. You could conceivably merge this page into one of those articles. Either way I think we need an obvious "top level" article for all this. Project Osprey (talk) 19:15, 15 December 2013 (UTC)
Lets see if we hear from others. These mergers bring out all sorts of views. Based on your comment, I did re-comment on the merger of electride into solvated electron, where some consensus did seem to exist. Thanks for the reminder. --Smokefoot (talk) 20:12, 15 December 2013 (UTC)

Merge proposalEdit

See above. We should move this thing to a better home.--Smokefoot (talk) 23:01, 19 December 2018 (UTC)
