Stereochemistry of organic compounds
Wiley & Sons, Sep 30, 1994 - Science - 1267 pages
Stereochemistry of Organic Compounds The first fully referenced, comprehensive book on this subject in more than thirty years, Stereochemistry of Organic Compounds contains up-to-date coverage and insightful exposition of all important new concepts, developments, and tools in the rapidly advancing field of stereochemistry, including:
* Asymmetric and diastereoselective synthesis
* Conformational analysis
* Properties of enantiomers and racemates
* Separation and analysis of enantiomers and diastereoisomers
* Developments in spectroscopy (including NMR), chromatography, and molecular mechanics as applied to stereochemistry
* Conceptual foundations of stereochemistry, including terminology and symmetry concepts
* Chiroptical properties
Written by the leading authorities in the field, the text includes more than 4,000 references, 1,000 illustrations, and a glossary of stereochemical terms.
