Stereochemistry: A Three-Dimensional Insight draws on the knowledge of its expert authors, providing a systematic treatment on the fundamental aspects of stereochemistry, covering conformational aspects, configurational aspects, effects of bulkiness, stereoelectronic effects on properties of molecules, and the genesis of enantiomerism, among other topics. Visuals and exercises are included to consolidate the principles learned, and the contents are carefully structured to prepare readers for predicting and organizing reaction components to obtain desired stereochemical outcomes. This book is an indispensable guide for all those exploring stereochemistry within their work.
The principles of stereochemistry are fundamental to understanding chemical behavior and can provide insights into a whole range of problems, from unusual selectivity and unexpected behaviors, to abnormally fast reactions and surprising biochemical preferences. However, understanding and exploring these 3D effects can be difficult within a 2D medium. This book has been designed to address this problem, providing foundational guidance on the principles and applications of stereochemistry that are fully supported by multimedia visuals.
