Paracyclophanes I: [2\(+\)2]cycloaddition of Ethylenes

  • Rasmus Y. Brogaard
Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


This chapter presents the first of two studies of photochemical reaction dynamics. The first section reviews the fundamental issue related to studying bimolecular reactions with fs time-resolution. This is followed by a presentation of the time-resolved investigation of the [2+2]cycloaddition reaction, which was published in Ref. II. The experiments were carried out on the magnetic bottle spectrometer in Ottawa (Sect. 6.2.2 xx). Readers interested in specific experimental parameters not mentioned in this thesis are referred to the paper.
