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
* Prostereoisomerism
* 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.


An updated, comprehensive textbook for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, as well as a comprehensive guide for researchers, explaining and illustrating the new concepts, developments, and tools of stereochemistry. Based on Eliel's 1962 classic, /Stereochemistry of Carbon Compounds, this expanded reference covers the historical background of the discipline before presenting recent advances and discoveries. Among the topics are asymmetric and diastereoselective synthesis; conformational analysis, properties of enantiomers and racemates; separation and analysis of enantiomers and diastereoisomers; developments in spectroscopy; prostereoisomerism; conceptual foundations of stereochemistry; and chiroptical properties.
