Pharmacological studies have demonstrated that andrographolide supports conceptual hydrogen transfer, which would be thermodynamically favoured for its allylic hydrogen

It has been suggested that the loss in scorch safety is primarily attributed to the elimination of degradative chain transfer reactions as the groups of Type I coagents quickly react with the alkoxy radical and do not possess an allylic hydrogen
