Description

Rearrangement in ground and excited states, Volume 1 covers essays on the rearrangements of carbocations; gas-phase ion rearrangements; and rearrangements of carbenes and nitrenes. The book also includes essays on the free-radical rearrangements; hypothetical biradical pathways in thermal unimolecular rearrangements; and rearrangements in carbanions. Chemists and people involved in the study of rearrangements will find the book invaluable.
