Cram The trigonal-bipyramid part o f this map is useful for describing the pseudorotations or turnstile isomerizations of pentacoordinate chiral compounds. A minimum of five reactions are needed to convert a bipyramid to its enantiomer. One o f these five reactions must involve 4 as the pivotal or unique ligand. Only an odd number of reactions can be used to get from a bipyramid to its enantiomer, and one of them must involve 4 as the pivotal or unique ligand. This map applies equally well to either Berry pseudorotations or Ugi turnstile mechanisms for isomerizations.

I n t r o d u c t i o n The last decade has seen an unprecedented development in the possibilities of applying the methods of quantum mechanics to the study of molecular structure. Increased computing facilities have speeded up the elaboration of new, rapid, semi-empirical techniques for dealing with all the valence-shell electrons of large molecules, while almost simultaneously there has been a great advance in the applicability of non-empirical methods for all the electrons.
