Stereochemistry remains an actively changing area of knowledge. This textbook covers the most important aspects of the subject, including chirality, the determination of absolute configurations, stereochemical descriptors, chiroptic properties, asymmetric synthesis, the resolution of racemates, confirmational analysis of both alkanes and heterocycles and much more. In addition to figures, equations and tables, the text is illustrated with examples both historical and current.
