Enantiomerization and automerization pathways are analyzed quantitatively using the continuous chirality measures methodology. The analysis gives rise to a number of new concepts and new descriptive tools, including isochirality, chirality maps, phase maps of nearest achirality and non-handed chirality. These allow one to classify enantiomerization processes into chiral, achiral, isochiral and non-handed categories.
