Rodd's Chemistry of Carbon Compounds, Volume II: Alicyclic Compounds, Part B: Six- and Higher-Membered Monocarbocyclic Compounds explores the synthesis and chemistry of compounds of the cyclohexane group and those containing rings of seven, eight, and more carbon atoms. This volume is composed of four chapters, and begins with the occurrence, formation, properties, derivatives, and synthesis of compounds of the cyclohexane group. The next two chapters are devoted to the chemistry of compounds of the monoterpenoid group and the carotenoids. The final chapter deals with the synthesis of the cycloheptane, cyclo-octane, and other macrocyclic compounds. This book is directed toward organic chemists and researchers.
