This unique work brings together contributions from the world's foremost authorities on a subject of wide-ranging importance both to continued scientific investigation and major industrial processes. Carbocations are involved in petroleum cracking and refining, coal processing, polymerization chemistry, synthetically important solvolytic reactions, isomerizations and rearrangements, addition reactions, aromatic substitutions, and a variety of biosynthetic transformations.

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.
