This thesis describes the reaction of dimethylvimrlidene and vitylvitylidene carbenes with indene and dihydronaphthalene derivatives to give oyolopropanes. Rearrangement of these by acid or base catalysis lead to opening of the cyclopropane ring. The products formed depended on the site of attack of the acid or base on the molecule and an attempt was made to relate this to the structure of the cyolopropyl species. Indene, cyolopentadiene and fluorene anions were generated with sodium in liquid ammonia or by a phase transfer technique and reacted with allyl bromides to give alkyne substituted derivatives. Pyrolyeis of these derivatives at high temperatures in vacuo was carried out.
