Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The flexibility of the bicyclo[2.2.1]heptane-based tricyclic bridged system in longifolene is analysed based on x-ray structural data. In this context, the molecular structure of three differently substituted longifolenes has been analysed. The highly substituentdependent conformation provides scope for the synthesis of a variety of commercially oriented products.
