We have two main tips for success in Chapter 6. Firstly, make sure you understand that helices are chiral. There are plenty of examples in the world around to help you explore this. Secondly, make sure you ‘get’ that allenes, hindered biaryl compounds and, more obviously, helicenes twist about an axis. You'll then be able to see the axial chirality that is the main new concept here. And look out for our insistence that it doesn't matter from which end you look at a helix when assigning its chirality.
