Stereoselective synthesis, also known as asymmetric synthesis, is a very wide concept, that includes any form of synthesis using reactions in which at least one element of chirality is formed in a substrate molecule, producing stereoisomeric, either enantio- or diastereoisomeric products, in unequal amounts. This special issue of Molecules will consider any submissions associated with stereoselective syntheses in any form.
