Subject Index


Advances in Alicyclic Chemistry, Volume 3 covers papers about the advances in alicyclic chemistry. The book presents a paper on the synthetic application of carbocyclic ring contraction reaction, with topics about rearrangements via carbonium ions, ring contractions via anionic intermediates or divalent carbon intermediates, photochemical ring contractions, and thermal rearrangements. The text also provides papers on the conformational analysis of cyclohexane and cyclohexene derivatives and on the review and analysis of modern theory about eliminations from cycloaliphatic derivatives. Chemists will find the book invaluable.
