Pericyclic reactions involve the almost simultaneous reorganization of bonding electron pairs through a cyclic transition state that enables products to be formed directly without the formation of an intermediate. In this series, we feature the following pericyclic reactions:
Other named reactions of the pericyclic reactions include:
A photochemical reaction occurs when a chemical absorbs energy in the form of light and is transformed into another product. A common example of a photochemical process is plant photosynthesis. Featured in this series are:
