Unformatted text preview: Look at the structure of Spironolactone, and determine the total number of chiral centers present in this molecule. Write your answer in the appropriate box. Several (but not all) of these chiral centers are marked with arrows. In the box associated with each arrow, indicate the stereochemical configuration of the chiral center as ( R ) or ( S ) . Total number of chiral centers present = O O H 3 C H H 3 C S H H O O * * * * * * * Spironolactone 7 1 2 4 3 ( R ) 2 3 1 4 ( R ) 2 1 3 4 ( S ) 2 4 3 1 = 2 1 4 3 ( R )...
