This text for undergraduate students presents an introduction to stereochemistry—the study of the three-dimensional structure of molecules—with a focus on organic chemistry. In eight chapters, Morris (U. of Glasgow) discusses topics such as the hybridization, conformation, and configuration of simple molecules; chiral molecules; molecules with two or more stereogenic centers; stereoisomerism in cyclic structures; and substitution reactions at saturated carbon. Coverage extends to the use of NMR spectroscopy in stereochemistry.

Wiley is now the US distributor for the Royal Society of Chemistry's (UK) Tutorial Chemistry Texts series (though that series name is replaced with Basic Concepts in Chemistry). This book duplicates the RSC book published under ISBN 0-85404-602-X in 2001. Writing for undergraduates, Morris (U. of Glasgow) discusses topics such as the hybridization, conformation, and configuration of simple molecules; chiral molecules; molecules with two or more stereogenic centers; stereoisomerism in cyclic structures; and substitution reactions at saturated carbon. Coverage extends to the use of NMR spectroscopy in stereochemistry. Problems and solutions are included. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
