cyclopropane

 [si″klo-pro´pān]
a colorless, flammable gas with a characteristic odor and pungent taste that is an inhalational anesthetic; now little used because of its flammability.

cy·clo·pro·pane

(sī'klō-prō'pān),
An explosive gas of characteristic odor; in the past, widely used to produce general anesthesia.
Synonym(s): trimethylene

cyclopropane

(sī′klə-prō′pān′)
n.
A highly flammable, explosive, colorless gaseous cycloalkane, C3H6, sometimes used as an anesthetic.

cyclopropane

A powerful, non-irritating anaesthetic gas. It has the disadvantages of being explosive and of causing heart irregularity in the presence of adrenaline.

For instance, one of these ligands, the chelating salen, is known by the ability to significantly decrease the Mn(III)/Mn(II) redox potentials, and the resulting complexes constitute suitable systems to catalyse multiple redox reactions such as asymmetric epoxidation of unfunctionalized olefins, catalase reaction, water photolysis, Diels-Alder cycloaddition, enantioselective cyclopropanation of styrenes and ring opening of epoxides [1-8].
