This dissertation describes research in organic chemistry including quantum mechanical investigations of Diels-Alder reaction, 1,3-dipolar cycloadditions and bioorthogonal reactions, and dynamic investigations of several Cope rearrangements and the Bergman cyclization. Several of these projects are collaborations with experimentalist and some are original research projects.
