Pericyclic Reactions, Volume 1 covers the theoretical approaches to pericyclic reactions and pericyclic reactions of reactive intermediates and of particular reaction types. The book discusses the operational criteria for evaluation of concertedness in potential pericyclic reactions; and the Mobius-Hückel treatment of organic systems and reactions and molecular orbital following as a technique in organic chemistry. The text also describes some pericyclic reactions of carbenes and carbanions. Physicists and people involved in the study of pericyclic reactions will find the book invaluable.
