What do Schrödinger's wave functions, Escher's intricate tiling patterns and chemistry's latest marvel, buckminsterfullerene, have in common?
This stunning book, written by two world-famous scientists, introduces the reader to one of nature's most fundamental, and ubiquitous, phenomena: Symmetry.
Enormous in scope, this scientific tour-de-force covers topics as diverse as quantum mechanics, stereochemistry, Penrose tilings and Raphael's Madonna. The authors connect these apparently unrelated fields in a completely non-mathematical fashion, which should appeal to the general and specialist reader alike.
Lucidly written and beautifully illustrated, this book provides an eminently readable discussion of the omnipresent concept of symmetry, its application in all branches of science, and its perception in nature, art and elsewhere.

A unique guide to variable temperature CD spectroscopy and its application in organic chemistry
This timely, original, thought-provoking work looks at organic stereochemistry from the perspective of circular dichroism (CD), using variable temperature CD spectroscopy to determine the conformation or absolute configuration of chiral molecules. With an emphasis on the analysis of optically active ketones and the carbonyl chromophore, the authors demonstrate the advantages of this highly sensitive spectroscopic tool for obtaining stereochemical information in diverse areas of organic chemistry, biochemistry, and medicinal/pharmaceutical chemistry. They combine detailed examples of stereochemical analysis with clear, thorough presentations, correlating chiroptical data with molecular mechanics calculations as well as data from NMR spectroscopy and other spectroscopic techniques. In addition, they provide a systematic survey of the professional literature, featuring an extraordinary collection of original CD spectra run at varying temperatures. Coverage includes:
* Chiroptical measurements: CD and ORD (Optical Rotatory Dispersion)
* Conformational analysis of compounds ranging from simple cyclic ketones to polycyclics
* Conjugated and homoconjugated systems
* Stereochemistry of the carbon-carbon double bond
* Stereochemistry from exciton coupling of two or more chromophores
* An interesting historical account of the development of stereochemical concepts

Stereochemistry covers the fundamental principles in all aspects of stereochemistry. 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.

Optically active compounds are gaining ever-increasing importance in organic chemistry, both in the academic and the industrial arenas. The rational synthesis of the growing number of chiral chemicals, drugs, and natural products demands efficient methods for producing these compounds in an enantiomerically, highly pure form. Despite the available alternative techniques, optical resolution via Diastereomeric salt formation remains the most widely used method of preparing pure enantiomers.
The CRC Handbook of Optical Resolutions Via Diastereomeric Salt Formation is the first book to exclusively address this important organic chemical process. It provides fast, one-stop access to a wealth of information, including all of the available data on 100 resolving agents, a list of 500 optically active compounds available in bulk along with their suppliers, data on more than 3,500 resolutions, and 4,200 citations.
This handbook helps answer virtually any question that may arise during the development of a new resolution process.
Which resolving agent and solvent should I use under these conditions?
How can I separate the diastereoisomers?
How can I optimize a resolution process?
How do I determine enantiomeric purity?
Which supplier has the resolving agent I need?
For a racemate already resolved, what were the resolving agent, solvent, and relevant citation?
This is the first book to deal exclusively with all aspects of this important organic chemical process, both theoretical and practical. With an abundance of analyzed examples, this single, authoritative reference provides all of the information you need to perform, develop, and optimize optical resolutions via Diastereomeric salt formation
