A bridged ring system is defined as one in which two rings have three or more atoms in common. Those ring atoms which are bonded to three other ring atoms are called bridgehead atoms. Bridgehead displacements will be taken to include all reactions in which one atom attached to a bridgehead carbon atom is replaced by another atom, regardless of mechanism, and in which the ring skeleton remains unaltered. The available literature to June, 1954, is covered in this review.
