Synthesis of precursors of a highly pyramidalized alkene and ab initio calculations on methylenecyclopropane, cyclopropene, and 1,3-diradicals
The synthesis of precursors for the highly pyramidalized olefin 3,7-dimethyltricyclo[3.3.0.03,7]octane are described within. Three computational projects are also contained in this thesis. In the first, the increase in strain energy that results from placing a trigonal center in a cyclopropane ring is shown to be due to the ...
