Ring Transformations in Heterocyclic Chemistry
Systematic discussion and mechanistic interpretation of ring transformation of heterocyclic compounds with different ring size. The discussed conversions are distributed according to the synthetic methods using elektrophilic-, nucleophilic- dienophilic and dipolarophilic reagents, metal-containing catalysts and photolytic conditions. The syntheses of parent compounds with more complicated structures are also discussed. Special emphasis is put on the structure-reactivity relationships which can be rationalized on the basis of reaction mechanism.
