Title: Development of a BIPCON apparatus to probe subtle phenomena associated with carbocations / by Ian R. Milne.

Abstract: This thesis details a study, including the development of the BIPCON Suite at the University of Adelaide, utilised in the conductometric analysis of the solvolyses of a series of 3-substituted adamantyl 1-tosylates in a range of solvents. The observed decrease in the degree of effect of the solvent ionising strength on the solvolysis of these substrates as the electron withdrawing nature of the remote substituent increased is shown, and potential explanations for this unexpected decrease in SN1 character given. The synthesis of some kinetically 1,3-disubstituted bicyclo[1.1.1]pentanes, through the trapping of the intermediate bridgehead cation is also discussed.
