Abstract

Five- and six-membered rings are quite common in organic compounds because of the tetrahedral geometry of the carbon atom. Hydrocarbons are reluctant to form new C-C bonds. Even so, five- and six-membered hydrocarbon rings can be created naturally, as proved by the composition of petroleum. This reaction was first achieved in research by means of heterogeneous catalysts. This bibliography-based review-paper is presented under headings - ″simple″ cyclization reactions; cyclization with skeletal rearrangement; cyclization over dual function catalysts and oxides; interpretation of metal activity in catalytic cyclization.
