Carbon Rich Compounds are defined here as carbon skeletons with a carbon to hydrogen ratio of 1:(=<1) which includes all-carbon compounds (i.e. carbon allotropes). The current volume covers modern methods for the preparation and transformation of polycyclic aromatic compounds including substructures of C60-fullerene and novel highly complex cyclophanes. A graph theoretical treatment presents a substitution rule, allowing the description of already existing structures and also the definition of new challenging synthetic targets. In the second part of this volume, the synthesis and unique chemistry of oligocyclic compounds consisting of five- and six-membered rings, so-called centro-polyhydrindanes as well as oligoquinanes, in particular highly unsaturated ones, are discussed.
