An understanding of chirality is central to the study and application of the molecular sciences. Particularly relevant to the work of pharmaceutical, natural product, organic, and analytical chemists, biochemists, and molecular biologists, Chirality in Natural and Applied Science provides a highly practical overview of the chemical significance of chirality.

Contributions from world-class scientists describe our current understanding of chirality and discuss its significant impact on modern chemistry and molecular science. They explore the origins of chirality, its natural occurrence on a variety of scales, and its current and potential applications in research and industry.

Chirality undoubtedly will remain integral to all of molecular science, and as our knowledge and understanding grow, its importance certainly will increase. Bringing together the insights and experience of scientists who have played influential roles in chirality research, Chirality in Natural and Applied Science helps ensure a thorough understanding of chirality, its importance and its applications.
