Introduction to Stereochemistry

Front Cover
Courier Corporation, 1965 - Science - 193 pages
2 Reviews
Three-part introductory text reviews molecular architecture, relating empirical bonding geometries to hybridization of central carbon atom; classifies stereoisomers according to symmetry properties and to nature of their barriers; and explores conceptual basis of asymmetric syntheses and kinetic resolutions. Exercises with answers. 1965 edition.
