Test for the Correct Enantiomer

Distance geometry cannot distinguish between enantiomers. In fact, distance geometry will more or less randomly produce the correct conformation or its mirror image. Tests have to be carried out in real space to establish the correct enantiomer. Chapter 20 describes a number of ways to carry out these tests with X-PLOR.
