The first chapter describes the manifold ways in which the latent functionality embedded in the humble heterocycle furan can be revealed by various oxidative processes.The second chapter details the fascinating cycloaddition and electrocyclization chemistry of unsaturated ketenes. The third chapter chronicles the development of a remarkable organometallic reaction of unactivated alkenes and alkynes, namely carbozincation.
