Public Property EnhancedStereoType() As CDEnhancedStereoType

Return Type


While the chirality of a specific stereocenter can be indicated with the appropriate wedged, hashed, or plain bond, sometimes it is useful to indicate the relative stereochemistry of a molecule as a whole, considering the relationship between all stereocenters. Stereochemical representation has been enhanced to allow specification of relationships between groups of stereocenters within a molecule. The new notation gives you the ability do describe complex enantiomers in a compact form.
