Stable Carbocation Chemistry offers a broad and representative view of the entire field, including
- Carbocation history and development
- Generation of intriguing classes of carbocations and carbodications
- Application and development of spectroscopic techniques
- Use of long–lived stable ion conditions to carry out practical synthetic transformations
- And more
Dedicated to George Olah for his pioneering and inspirational efforts in the field, Stable Carbocation Chemistry uncovers fertile ground for continued research and further practical application in this dynamic and still–growing field.
