This internationally authored edition consists of contributions by leaders in the field. It contains new material on recent advances in the topics covered in the previous volume, including the synthesis of cyclopropanes, their preparation by metal catalysed reactions, their stereomutations and thermochemistry and propellanes. This title also emphasizes the synthetic, analytical and physical properties of the cyclopropyl group.
