The physical chemistry of chirality touches on many different chemical fields and as these fields become increasingly sophisticated there is a need for an updated molecular-level text about how the chemistry actually takes place. This volume fills that need by providing current information on a variety of topics, including chiral recognition, spectroscopy, vibrations of chiral molecules, chiral surfaces and theoretical issues in chirality.

Industry Reviews

Chirality is an important and expanding research area. This book will update the specialist, reward the browser and provide examples for the faculty teacher. Chemistry & Industry The publication of this book on the physical chemistry of chirality is appropriate and timely ... The editor's introduction is an excellent overview of current structural and spectroscopic work on chiral molecules, solids, surfaces and future developments. Chemistry & Industry
