Determination of absolute configuration,An overview related to this Special Issue

CHIRALITY, Issue 5 2008
Stig Allenmark
Abstract Rapid progress in asymmetric synthesis stimulated a further development of methods and techniques for the determination of absolute configuration of chiral molecules. In recent years the direct methods, i.e. X-ray diffraction analysis, circular dichroism (vibrational and electronic), Raman optical activity, optical rotation measurements, as well as indirect methods for relative configuration assignment with the use of NMR spectroscopy or enzymatic transformations, are receiving increasing attention not only by specialists in the field but also by synthetic and structural chemists alike. This paper provides a short overview of the methods currently used, as well as references to contributions collected in this Thematic Issue of Chirality. Chirality, 2008. © 2008 Wiley-Liss, Inc.

Internal and External Corporate Governance: An Interface between an Organization and its Environment

BRITISH JOURNAL OF MANAGEMENT, Issue 3 2010
Igor Filatotchev
Most corporate governance research focuses on a universal link between corporate governance practices (e.g. shareholder activism, board independence) and performance outcomes, but neglects how interdependences between the organization and diverse environments lead to variations in the effectiveness of different corporate governance practices. This paper develops an organizational approach to corporate governance and focuses on two dominant streams that analyse internal and external governance mechanisms. First, we explore governance practices aimed at dealing with a complex set of problems internal to an organization, such as conflicts of interest between managers and shareholders, different types of shareholders, and block-holder opportunism. Second, we discuss the importance of formal and informal governance arrangements that organizations use in managing their relationships with external parties, such as alliance partners, overseas subsidiaries and network members. We argue that an integrated approach bringing these two streams together helps to develop a more holistic view on the effectiveness and efficiency of various corporate governance mechanisms, and suggests a number of avenues for future research. This paper also sets the scene for this thematic issue on corporate governance, scopes the field and introduces 11 papers which make significant contributions towards our understanding of corporate governance.
