Review of Literature Information
The compounds reduced are given in the table in order of increasing empirical formulas. Compounds with the same empirical formula are arranged in order of increasing number of rings in the molecule, and compounds with the same number of rings in order of increasing number of substituents. In the case of complex reaction products, the structural formula is given only for that part of the molecule in which changes took place during Birch reduction. Tetrahydrofuran used as an auxiliary solvent is denoted in the table by THF.
