Polycyclic hydrocarbons are of curiosity in lots of fields of technological know-how: theoretical chemistry, actual chemistry, natural chemistry, dyestuff chemistry and biology. in regards to the latter, i'm indebted to Dr. Regina Schoental of the clinical examine Council for the evaluation during this current paintings of carcinogenesis by means of polycyclic hydrocarbons. This booklet is designed to give the evidence in an easy and transparent order and to derive empirical ideas from them, however it doesn't current a com prehensive thought approximately polycyclic hydrocarbons. An try is made as a substitute to increase classical symbolism into sleek structural chemistry. hence large use is made up of Robinson's fragrant sextet, that's utilized in an uncompromising and strict manner. This quasi-classical try is inspired additional via such thoroughly unforeseen dis coveries as these of Dewar benzene and of the digital asymmetry of officially symmetric hydrocarbons. How tough it's to wreck clear of any proven frame of mind has been admirably expressed via Kekule ("Organische Chemie", 1861, half 1, web page four, translated from the German): "All our rules are established, to an volume a lot more than we in most cases think, on these of our predecessors. Our gathered adventure, the notions of which our education has accustomed us to, of no matter what variety they've been, effect the process our innovations way over we're prepared to confess; merely too usually the subsequent of our on a regular basis used, good trodden frame of mind leads us to miss the best of correlations.
