Stereochemistry—Molecular Handedness

Lecture no. 6 from the course: Foundations of Organic Chemistry

Stereochemistry—Molecular Handedness

Taught by Professor Ron B. Davis Jr. | 28 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course

Make sense of a crucial concept in organic chemistry: the handedness of molecules, or, as chemists call it, “chirality.” Topics include the definition of chiral tetrahedral centers; the creation of stereoisomer sets via inversion of handedness; and intriguing examples of stereoisomers (including enantiomers and double-bonded stereoisomers) and their unique chiral centers.
