The second edition of Basic Stereochemistry of Organic Molecules fulfils the requirements of undergraduate chemistry (Hons) course and provides the fundamental concepts of both static and dynamic stereochemistry. It is also useful for postgraduate students as a preliminary text on the subject.
The explanation of concepts in each chapter is supported with adequate number of illustrative diagrams and a large number of solved and unsolved problems, to facilitate easy understanding of even the complex mechanisms by self-study.
