    I’m cramming for finals and unfortunately missed the lectures on sugars and fisher projections. Nothing I found laid it out clearly enough for me to understand how everything went together. Your explanation of where the attacks take place finally helped it click for me! Thank you

    Saving lives one Fischer projection at a time. Thank you!

  3. This page is extremely helpful and well-put-together. You have significantly improved my understanding of stereochemistry and how the different projections relate to eachother. Thank you for explaining it all so well!
