Concepts and Terminology in Organic StereochemistryBy
- Moses K. Kaloustian, Department of Chemistry, Fordham University, Bronx, NY, USA
In the last quarter century there have been only two seminal contributions in the field of organic stereochemistry - both by Kurt Mislow and his coworkers - ones that have clarified the basic concepts of stereotopicity and chirotopicity. Not withstanding a few other sporadic contributions by others, to date there have been no systematic attempts to unify and develop the conceptual framework and terminology of organic stereochemistry. Existing terms are frequently misused or abused, needed terms - redundant, confusing or controversial - are invented randomly, and yet other needed terms have not seen the light of day. This three-part work presents the elements of a simple, uniform and comprehensive language of the stereochemical underpinnings of organic chemistry. It is essential reading for industrial chemists, graduate students, university professors and industrial researchers in the field of Organic Stereochemistry.

"Supplemented by many figures, this advanced - level reading is for graduate students, university professors and industrial researchers in the field of Organic Sterochemistry. Concepts and Terminology in Organic Sterochemistry would be a good addition to the research library collections."
