Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
?It provides a nice overview of the subject and some in-depth discussions of selected topics in the field. Everyone from students to seasoned experts will find interesting new molecules to ponder in this book, including some that have yet to be synthesized.? ( Angewandte Chemistry, September 2009)

?This comprehensive review of current literature is intended for PhD students, readers interested in learning about the field, and specialists. The book is clearly illustrated and well-written.? ( Book News, September 2009)

?I would emphasize that any organic chemist who picks up this volume and leafs through it will have difficulty putting it down again. Almost every section stimulates fresh thoughts and research ideas.? (The Journal of the American Chemical Society, July 2009)

Meet the Author

Helena Dodziuk worked for many years at the Institute of Organic Chemistry, at present at the Institute of Physical Chemistry, both of Polish Academy of Sciences. She is author or coauthor of over 100 publications, among them four books (one in Polish), 13 reviews and some popular articles. In addition to strained hydrocarbons with unusual spatial structure, she is interested in conformational analysis of hydrocarbons, classification of chiral molecules and isomers, NMR spectra and model calculations of cyclodextrin complexes, endohedral fullerene complexes and carbon nanotubes.
