Author Index

Subject Index


Advances in Alicyclic Chemistry, Volume 1 brings together numerous research works on the chemistry of alicyclic compounds. This volume is divided into five chapters and begins with an evaluation of the chemistry of small bicyclic systems and cyclopropenes. The subsequent chapters examine the reactions of six- and seven-membered ring cyclohexadiones and tropolones. The final chapter focuses on the theoretical and experimental aspects of bridgehead reactivity. This book will be of value to organic chemists and graduate students.
