Rodd's Chemistry of Carbon Compounds, Volume II: Alicyclic Compounds focuses on alicyclic chemistry. The book first ponders on acyclic and monocyclic monoterpenoids, including artemisyl, santolinyl, chrysanthemyl, and other irregular systems; naturally occurring halogenated monoterpenoids; cyclobutanes; and tetramethylcyclohexanes. The text discusses the carotenoid group of natural products. Trends in carotenoid chemical research; improved methodology; optical isomerism including aliene isomerism; and geometrical isomerism are described. The book discusses cycloheptanes and cyclooctanes, large alicyclic ring systems, and polycarbonic compounds with separate ring systems and spiro compounds. The text describes polycyclic compounds and polycarbocyclic bridged ring compounds, and then discusses bicarbocyclic natural products. The Wagner-Meerwein rearrangement; camphor and related compounds; fenchone and related compounds; and carane, thujane, and pinane groups are also considered. The text is a valuable reference for readers interested in the study of carbon compounds.
