Abstract : Recent advances in elaborating the mechanisms of photocycloelimination reactions in oxiranes, cyclic carbonates, cyclic sulfites, 1,3,2-dioxo-P-phospho-lane, and 1,3-dioxalanes are discussed. Investigations used both esr and optical spectroscopy in rigid matrices and comparative chemical studies conducted at ambient temperature.
