Abstract : Work on the synthesis of new hydrocarbon fuel systems involved: (a) a study of the synthesis and acid-promoted rearrangement of PCU-derived pinacols; (b) synthesis of an HCTD-derived pinacol; (c) a study of the generation and trapping of a PCU-derived vinylidenecarbene; (d) synthesis of 'homosecohexaprismane-10,13-dione'; (e) synthesis and thermal rearrangement of pentacyclo6.5.0.0(4,12).0(5,10).0(9,13)trideca-2,6-diene; (f) a study of the acid and base promoted reararrangements of hexacyclo11.2.1.0(2,12).0(5,10).0(5,15).0(10,14)hexadeca-6,8-diene-4,11-dione. The results of studies that were performed in collaboration with investigators in four external laboratories are described. In addition, two new syntheses of TNAZ were developed, both of which proceed by way of an intermediate 1-azabicyclo1.1.0butane. Finally, X-ray crystal structures have been determined for a variety of cage hydrocarbons.
