Cyclic Molecules

Some articles on cyclic molecules, molecule:

Quantifying Allylic Strain Energy - Cyclic Molecules
... are commonly used to approximate strain energy in cyclic molecules, as values for these interactions are available ... Allylic strain tends to be greater for cyclic molecules compared to olefins as strain energy increases with increasing rigidity of the system ...
Angle Strain
... strain, also called Baeyer strain in cyclic molecules, is the resistance associated with bond angle compression or bond angle expansion ... Angle strain typically affects cyclic molecules because non-cyclic molecules will thermodynamically conform to the most favorable stable state ... Having higher angle strain makes a molecule more unstable and reactive ...
