Takes the reader step-by-step from the structures of simple molecules, such as methane, to the basic shapes of biologically important macromolecules, such as proteins and nucleic acids. Deals with the concept of chirality, which is often overlooked by many texts. Chirality is approached by firstly explaining the stereochemistry of compounds with one stereogenic centre, then dealing with compounds having two or more stereogenic centres before focusing on compounds possessing axes of chirality. The importance of stereochemistry in a wide variety of transformations (for example addition reactions, eliminations, and cycloadditions), is discussed. The final chapters describe the application of stereocontrol in asymmetric synthesis, indicating the use of chiral auxiliaries and chiral catalysts in modern chemistry.
