Abstract : The report examines the molecular orbital treatment of fulvenes in order to demonstrate the correlation of nucleophilic and electrophilic attack on fulvene compounds with substitution predicted by HMO calculations. In particular, the base-catalyzed reaction of dimethylfulvene and acetone was studied to show how these calculations confirm the proven structure. (Author)
