This concise resource is generously enriched with numerous worked examples. Concentrating on organic chemistry, early chapters in this resourceful publication deal mainly with definitions of terms such as chirality, enantiomers, diastereoisomers and racemisation, complete with suitable examples to illustrate key concepts. Use of a polarimeter and associated definitions are described, together with two different conventions D, L and R, S for specification of configuration. The distinction between conformation and configuration is developed to include assignment onf configurations to di-substituted cyclohexanes and to the decalins.
