Abstract : Final report on studies concerned with the experimental tests of theory in bond breaking reactions of strained ring compounds. The first test of orbital symmetry control of a thermal 1,3-sigmatropic rearrangement was established. Preliminary work was carried out on the construction of a test in the 1,5-sigmatropic case. New synthetic approaches have been developed to the optically active cycloheptatrienes needed for stereochemical experiments. (Author)
