The subject of this book is the chemistry of polycyclopentanoid compounds as it has evolved during the last 3-4 years. The text covers new synthetic developments in polyquinane chemistry including versatile functional group transformations. Attention is given to theoretically interesting and naturally occurring molecules having these structural features. All facets of the nonnatural compounds field are outlined, with particular emphasis given to synthesis and reactivity. For the natural products field, isolation and relevant chemical transformations are first discussed. This is followed by a detailed description of those syntheses that have been achieved for non-polycyclopentanoid targets via polyquinane intermediates. Finally, the many routes recently developed for gaining access to di- and triquinanes isolated from natural sources are surveyed.
