Parts 1 and 2 of The Chemistry of the Cyclopropyl Group. Together they form a comprehensive review of the current state of research into cyclopropyl compounds. Literature coverage is provided up to mid 1985 in most chapters, with some areas of more recent coverage. Because of the interest in these compounds, the chapters cover all aspects of cyclopropyl compounds including structure, spectra, synthesis, derivatives and electrochemistry.
