International Series of Monographs in Organic Chemistry, Volume 9: The Tetracyclic Diterpenes covers the physico-chemical properties, stereochemistry, reactions, and synthesis of various tetracyclic diterpene compounds. Each chapter of this eight-chapter book describes specific tetracyclic diterpene. The opening chapters focus on the members of the kaurene-phyllocladene class, which are best known and most widely distributed of the tetracyclic diterpenes. The subsequent chapters deal with other classes, including gibberellins, the stachene class, tetracyclic diterpenes alkanoids, and aconite alkaloids. The final chapters consider the synthesis and biosynthesis of tetracyclic diterpenes. This book will prove useful to organic chemists.
