Sorry, no etymologies found.
Increasingly, however, his work began to reflect a deeply held interest in stereochemistry of plant pigments, especially polyenes.
The affinities acheived by virtue of its stereochemistry is not a given, because the stereochemistry of the nucleotide could have been different.
As E.L. Eliel pointed out, stereochemistry is not so much a branch of chemistry but rather a way of looking at chemistry.
According to a prominent fellow scientist, your paper represents the first real advance in stereochemistry since the theory of Van 't Hoffand Le
Not only can a compound have more than one geometric form, but chemical reactions can also have specificity in their stereochemistry, thereby forming a product with a particular three-dimensional arrangement of the atoms.
Prelog of ETH in Zürich was also based on research in stereochemistry.
In each of the 19 pathways for the generation of chiral amino acids, the stereochemistry at the α-carbon atom is established by a transamination reaction that involves pyridoxal phosphate.
Hoffmann formulated in 1965, together with Robert B. Woodward (see Section 3.8), rules based on the conservation of orbital symmetry, for the reactivity and stereochemistry in chemical reactions.
This thread is about stereochemistry and Art/Yarus/Meyer on codon-amino acid relationships.
It's right there, Meyers says the words "genetic code" and talks about the codon-amino acid correspondence, and asserts (wrongly, as Art/Yarus show) that stereochemistry can't explain it.
