In the third chapter we apply the concepts developed in earlier chapters to selected pericyclic reactions, rearrangement reactions, reactions involving transient intermediates such as radicals, diradicals, and cations, and to reactions involving classical electrophile/nucleophile combinations. The following additional material is available for this chapter:
Additional material for Figure 3.3:
Selected stationary points and molecular orbitals for the controtatory 4pi-electrocyclic ring closure of (E,E)-hexa-2,4-diene.
Additional material for Figure 3.48:
Transition state for the endo-(4+2) cycloaddition of cyclopenta-1,3-diene and methyl acrylate.
Additional material for Figure 3.68:
Transition state for the [1,5]-hydrogen migration in (Z)-penta-1,5-diene.
Additional material for Figure 3.82:
Structure of the 2-norbornyl cation.
Additional material for Figure 3.90:
Transition state for the [1,7]-hydrogen migration in hepta-1,3,5-triene.
