The reliable determination of stereocenters contained within chemical structures usually requires utilization of NMR data, chemical derivatization, molecular modeling, quantum-mechanical (QM) calculations and, if available, X-ray analysis. In this article, we show that the number of stereoisomers which need to be thoroughly verified, can be significantly reduced by the application of NMR chemical shift calculation to the full stereoisomer set of possibilities using a fragmental approach based on HOSE codes.
