Cyclopropane is the cycloalkane with the molecular formula (CH2)3, consisting of three methylene groups (CH2) linked to each other to form a ring. The small size of the ring creates substantial ring strain in the structure. Cyclopropane itself is mainly of theoretical interest but many of its derivatives are of commercial or biological significance.[3] Contents 1 History 1.1 Anaesthesia 1.2 Pharmacology 2 Structure and bonding 3 Synthesis 4 Cyclopropanes 5 Reactions 6 Saf...
