  • The stereoelectronic ideas which emerged from this work are still widely used in chemistry and mechanistic enzymology.

    Elias James Corey - Autobiography

  • Our main research topics were concerned with NMR studies of conformational rate processes, nitrogen inversion, quadrupolar relaxation, molecular motions and liquid structure, as well as ab initio quantum chemical computations of inversion barriers, of electronic structures and later on, of stereoelectronic effects.
