Determination of the Absolute Configuration of Optically Active Compounds by Means of X-Rays 
The absolute configuration of a-hydroxyphosphonates
Abstract The absolute configuration and CD spectra of a series of chiral α-hydroxyphosphonates and phosphoric acids have been determinated. The hydroxyphosphonates were prepared via a quinineExpand
Absolute chirality of the γ-polymorph of glycine: correlation of the absolute structure with the optical rotation.
Crystal specimens of the γ-polymorph of achiral glycine which crystallize in space groups P31 and P32 as determined by the anomalous X-ray scattering method are shown to be laevorotatory andExpand
The conformation of non-aromatic ring compounds XXVI the absolute configuration of 2α,3β-dibromo-5α-cholestane
The absolute configuration of 2α, 3β-dibromo-5α-cholestane has been determined using the anomalous dispersion of X-rays by the bromine atoms. The results agree with the generally acceptedExpand
Stereochemistry of optically active compounds. Problems and prospects
The review is concerned with the fundamental ideas and concepts of chiral stereochemistry, i.e., of the stereochemistry dealing with optically active compounds, from the asymmetric synthesis to theExpand
A chiral probe useful for optical resolution and X-ray crystallographic determination of the absolute stereochemistry of carboxylic acids
Abstract (1S,2R,4R)-(−)-2,10-Camphorsultam is a very useful chiral probe for optical resolution by HPLC and X-ray crystallographic determination of the absolute stereochemistry of carboxylic acids.Expand
Absolute structure determination of compounds with axial and planar chirality using the crystalline sponge method.
The absolute stereochemistry of compounds with axial and planar chirality is successfully determined by the crystalline sponge method without crystallization or derivatization of the compounds. ThisExpand
Absolute configuration of (+)-1-amino-1-methylpropylphosphonic acid
ConclusionThe absolute configuration of (+)-1-amino-1-methylpropylphosphonic acid and its (+)-diethyl ester is S in the Cahn -Ingold -Prelog system.
The x-ray structural investigation of alkaloids I. Molecular structure and absolute configuration of (+)-cocculine
SummaryAn x-ray structural investigation of the alkaloid (+)-cocculine in the form of the hydrobromide has been performed. The bond lengths and valence angles are the usual ones. The conformations ofExpand
Chirality determination from X-ray powder data—diastereomeric co-crystals of mandelic acid and proline amide
Diastereomeric co-crystals of the title compounds display sufficiently different powder diffractograms in order to determine the absolute configuration of one of the two crystal formers. SelectiveExpand
The theory of the optical activity and the absolute configuration of substituted triptycenes
Abstract The exciton theoretical analysis of the circular dichroism of the optically active triptycene derivatives is carried out and the absolute configuration is deduced from intensive spectralExpand
