Inspired by a symposium held at the University of Southern California, in March 1988, dedicated to Paul van R. Schleyer, contributors examine the role of 'hypercarbons' in several areas of chemistry in this book. The multicenter bonding of 'hypercarbons' relative to the chemistry of main group elements, organometallics, cluster chemistry, carbocations, and hydrocarbon chemistry are systematically covered.
