This mini-review describes recent developments and trends in the area of syntheses and applications of azo compounds, which are planned to act as initiators of radical reactions, particularly polymerizations. The paper reports chemical modifications of well-known initiators (AIBN, etc.) or variants of syntheses of new types of these compounds. The chemical modifications of basic skeletons of azo initiators are discussed in the context with their properties and applications. Also discussed are the contemporary trends in the development of these initiators, particularly in preparation of microparticles and nanoparticles of polymers or hybrid inorganic–organic microparticles and nanoparticles prepared for intentional studies and applications.
