The absolute configuration of echitamine iodide by the X-ray technique

  • H. Manohar
  • S. Ramaseshan


The absolute configuration of echitamine iodide has been determined by the Bijvoet technique, making use of the intensity differences betweenhkl and\(\bar h \bar k \bar l\) reflections due to the anomalous scattering of CuKa radiation by the iodine atom. The various steps in the procedure are discussed in detail in this paper.
