For a locally convex space , we use the Aron–Berner extension to define canonical mappings from into different duals of . We investigate necessary and suffcient conditions for the continuity of these mappings, paying particular attention to three special cases — Fréchet spaces, DF spaces and reflexive A-nuclear spaces. We define Q-reflexive spaces as spaces where a certain canonical mapping can be extended to an isomorphism between and . We find examples of such spaces.
