Graphical Representation of Configuration
The configuration of compounds is determined by the relationship of atoms in three dimensional space, yet chemical structures are most commonly depicted in two dimensional media such as printed publications or computer screens. Recommendations are provided for the display of three-dimensional stereochemical information in two-dimensional diagrams in ways that avoid ambiguity and are likely to be well-understood by all viewers. Examples are provided for all types of stereochemical configuration, with explanation of which styles are preferred and which should be avoided.
