INDEX of isomerism and stereochemistry of organic compounds notes (re-edit)

The classification of types of isomerism - summary chart below

Notes on the types of isomerism and aspects of stereochemistry of organic compounds

14.1 General introduction and definition of isomerism, structural isomerism - chain, positional, functional group and tautomerism types of isomerism

Lots of case studies of structural isomerism described and explained including the effect on the physical and chemical properties of structural isomers - differences highlighted

14.2 STEREOISOMERISM general definition, E/Z isomerism (geometric/geometrical cis/trans isomerism)

Configuration priority rules explained and lots of case studies of E/Z isomerism described and explained including the effect on the physical and chemical properties of E and Z isomers - differences highlighted

(old notation of cis/trans and 'geometric isomerism' referred to)

14.3 Stereoisomerism - R/S isomerism and chiral auxiliary synthesis

Lots of case studies of R/S isomerism described and explained including the effect on the physical and chemical properties of R and S isomers (enantiomers) - highlighting similarities and differences

(old terminology e.g. 'optical isomers' is referred to)

Other sections with stereochemical 'connections'

14.4 Protein-enzyme structure, function and inhibition

14.5 Protein analysis & synthesis AND combinatorial chemistry and autosynthesis

14.6 Stereoregular polymers -  isotactic/atactic/syndiotactic poly(propene) - use of Ziegler-Natta catalysts

14.7 Index of sets of isomers of a given organic molecular formula

and also Isomerism in Transition metal complexes
