Chapter 11: Oligomers and Polymers of Carbon Dioxide and CO2/N2 Chapter 12: Polyprismanes. Flights of Fun and Fancy Chapter 13: A Menagerie of Molecules from Michl and Balaji: Superstrained Molecules Chapter 14: Summary
The aim of this highly original book is to survey a number of chemical compounds that some chemists, theoretical and experimental, find fascinating. This is the first book to feature compounds/classes of compounds of theoretical interest that have been studied theoretically but have defied synthesis. It is hoped that this collection of idiosyncratic molecules will appeal to chemists who find the study of chemical oddities interesting and, on occasion, even rewarding.

Addresses difficult routes of synthesis within organic chemistry
Focuses on the molecular modeling and synthesis of unstable molecules
