This page lists the learning units from the topic "Stereochemistry" in a reasonable order with regard to contents.
Chirality 30 min.
Chirality as basic principle of stereochemistry is explained in this learning unit.
In this short learning unit, the R,S system, the CIP sequencing rules, and the naming of the absolute configuration of chirality centers are explained.
The Fischer Projection 30 min.
This learning unit describes the drawing of molecules and the naming of the absolute configuration with the help of the Fischer projection.
This learning unit explains the stereochemistry and isomeric relationships of compounds with several chirality centers. The specific characteristics of meso compounds and cyclic stereoisomers are illustrated.
This learning unit describes the specific characteristics of chiral, cyclic compounds.
This short learning unit describes the physical properties of stereoisomers and explains the terms "optical purity" and "relative configuration".
This learning unit describes methods of obtaining enantiomerically pure, chiral compounds by resolution of racemates and asymmetric synthesis.
Additional Chirality Elements 30 min.
This learning unit explains chirality elements that are not chirality centers, such as chirality axes, helices and chirality planes, as well as the naming of absolute configuration of these chirality elements. In addition, heteroatoms as chirality centers are described.
