Recent advances in the synthesis of the propellanes are reviewed. This article is divided into two parts, Part 1 concerns the available synthetic methods for a variety of propellanes in which the methods are classfied by the type of reactions 1) cycloaddition, 2) condensation, 3) reductive de- and 4) skeletal rearrangement. Part 2 deals with the synthesis of the target propellanes which involve small ring propellane, 1, Dewar benzene, buttaflane, trispiro- 3, 3]-pro-pellane and modhephene.
