This research program involved investigation of the structure and chemistry of intermediates in ionic reactions viz. carbonium ion reactions. The approach has been to determine symmetry properties of product forming intermediates and from these deduce structural details of these intermediates. Kinetic, isotope tracer and stereochemical methods were used. In connection with the latter a new technique was developed which involves the use of optically active nmr shift reagents for the direct determination of enantiomeric compositions. With this technique it was possible to solve problems that could not be handled by other methods. Author
