By Ernest L. Eliel
Stereochemistry Of Carbon Compounds, published in 2000, comprehensively covers stereochemistry as part of modern organic chemistry. It is designed to help readers understand the fundamentals of this subject, which would later be useful to them while pursuing their higher studies.
The textbook starts off with an introduction, and is followed by two chapters on optical isomerism, one of which focuses on asymmetric carbon atoms. The author then demonstrates racemic modifications. Readers can also learn about the conformation and reactivity of acyclic compounds, and the stereochemistry of tricovalent carbon. Stereochemistry Of Carbon Compounds’ chapter on Configuration explains the limitations of IUC nomenclature, and illustrates the usefulness of the new R,S- nomenclature. The author teaches readers how to directly determine absolute configurations, and describes ways to correlate configurations. Furthermore, students will also get the opportunity to understand how R,S- nomenclature is used on allenes and its related compounds.
Readers will also discover that geometrical isomerism is based on physical properties, chemical reactions, and interconversion. Optical Rotation and Optical Rotatory Dispersion covers the latest developments that have taken place in this field. One-fourth of this textbook is dedicated to the stereochemistry of ring systems. The four chapters based on this topic focus on six-membered rings, bridged rings, fused rings, and others. Basic concepts, properties, and relationships are also explained. The last chapter of Stereochemistry Of Carbon Compounds is titled Stereo Selective Synthesis and Stereo Regulated Polymerization.
This book has been designed for advanced undergraduates and beginner graduates. Eliel has written this guide with the understanding that readers have a basic background in physical and organic chemistry. First published in 1962, Stereochemistry Of Carbon Compounds has influenced organic chemists for many decades.
