Editorial Reviews

Proceedings of the NATO Advanced Research Workshop on Supramolecular Stereochemistry which took place in Hveragerdi, Iceland in September 1994. The 19 plenary contributions include such topics as template-induced control of stereochemistry for the synthesis of polymers; novel protein topologies; and supramolecular stereochemistry of supercharged polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. Some of the 12 poster contributions include clathration properties of propeller-shaped molecules; selectivity enhancement by concave reagents; and cyclodextrin-metallocene inclusion complexes.
