About this book

This book is for chemists in industry and in academic and research institutions. It is also for those in related disciplines such as pharmacy, physics and biochemistry. It covers the important applications of Chirality in industry and beyond, and its natural occurrence on a variety of scales from the nano to the macro. The importance of this field has continued to grow with strategically important applications in the pharmaceutical, flavour and fragrance industries. The launch of this title coincides with the 150th anniversary of the birth of Louis Pasteur who first described the phenomenon.

Media reviews
... contains some of the most up-to-the-minute information on the origins of chirality in nature... Few other books on chirality have attempted to cover such a diversity of themes, and the editors are to be congratulated. D R Taylor, Chromotographia. "This is a fine volume, with something for everyone, from the history of science buff and the hardcore theoretician to the practicing lab rat chemist. Editors Lough and Wainer have managed to assemble an excellent roster of experts." The Alchemist
