ISBN: 978-0-471-54411-1 October 1991 352 Pages


Stereochemistry remains an actively changing area of knowledge. Topics include chirality, the determination of absolute configurations, stereochemical descriptors, chiroptic properties, asymmetric synthesis, the resolution of racemates, confirmational analysis of both alkanes and heterocycles and much more. In addition to figures, equations and tables, it is profusely illustrated with examples both historical and current.
