Supramolecular stereochemistry is a topic with enormous breadth, and this book brings together experts in polymer chemistry, bioorganic chemistry, crystallography, materials science, dendrimer science, nanochemistry, conformational analysis, molecular recognition chemistry, and topological stereochemistry.
Contains 19 plenary and 12 poster contributions.
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.
