“The precise arrangement of atoms in 3-dimensional space – stereochemistry – is a fundamental, overarching concept in chemistry. It impinges on our very existence because all the molecules of life (proteins, nucleic acids, carbohydrates, lipids) possess stereochemical features.

However, students often struggle to understand stereochemistry, and find the terminology confusing. This book addresses such issues head on, and teaches the core concepts of stereochemistry in a logical and extremely clear manner. It familiarises students with the language and structural basis of stereochemistry, and, importantly, gives them confidence to draw accurate representations.

The involvement of student co-authors is an added bonus since it ensures that the explanation of difficult concepts is clear, and adequately addresses topics that they find more challenging.”
