About the book
The book titled “Pericyclic Reactions” is a genuine effort by the author to present before the students of Chemistry pursuing P.G. programme as well as those preparing for competitive examinations the principles of pericyclic reactions in simple and lucid language. Different types of pericyclic reactions, viz., electrocyclic reactions, cycloaddition reactions, sigmatropic rearrangements and group transfer reactions have been dealt with in separate chapters and the stereochemistries of the products have been justified for each type of reactions on the basis of frontier molecular orbital method, orbital correlation method, suprafacial and antarafacial considerations of orbital regroupings and Huckel-Mobius method. Reactions and their analyses have been backed by a lot of examples and illustrations. This makes a very important yet somewhat complicated and difficult topic look interesting and easy to understand. At the end of the book, numerous problems on the various classes of pericyclic reactions have been collected and solutions to most of these have been provided for the benefit of the students.
