A short historical introduction serves to introduce many common stereochemical terms used throughout the book. Chapter two is an account of the structures of simple unstrained organic molecules followed by examples of strained molecules. The third chapter deals with conformational analysis of acyclic and carbo cyclic molecules, ending with a short exposition of molecular mechanics.

Chapter four is about stereo isomerism in molecules and compounds. A full description of enantiomerism and diaster eomerism is followed by an explanation of the nomenclature for absolute and relative configurations of molecules and for topism. A short chapter describes racemates, their resolution, and methods for determining enantiomeric purity. The book concludes with a survey of stereo selective and stereo specific reactions, including the use of chiral catalysts and auxiliaries, rules for predicting stereo selectivity, and double asymmetric synthesis.
