Determination of the Absolute Crystal Structure of Achiral Pentaerythritol

Abstract

This investigation was carried out in a larger framework aiming for the correlation of the optical rotation of the achiral molecule Pentaerythritol (PE, C(CH2OH)4) to the crystal and molecular structure. PE is a compound with a tetrahedral coordination of the central carbon atom by four hydroxymethylene groups which are chemically equivalent and related to… (More)
