CHEM 2370 OBJECTIVES CHAPTER 5 STEREOCHEMISTRY TERMS : Know definitions, gives examples, explain briefly 1. 1. Constitutional isomers 2. 2. Stereoisomers 3. 3. Enantiomers 4. 4. Diastereomers 5. 5. Stereocenter 6. 6. Chirality, chiral molecule 7. 7. Plane of symmetry (mirror plane) 8. 8. Absolute configuration: ‘R-S’ system 9. 9. Optical activity 10. 10. Dextrorotatory, levorotatory: ‘d’ (+), ‘l’(-) labels, 11. 11. % Optical purity 12. 12. Racemic mixture (racemic modification, racemate, racemic form) 13. 13. Fischer projection formulas 14. 14. Meso- compounds 15. 15. Relative configuration 16. 16. Resolution of enantiomer mixtures 17. 17. Allenes KNOW HOW TO: 1. 1. Identify a stereocenter in a given molecule. 2. 2. Determine the number of theoretically possible stereoisomers; draw structural formulas for ALL; identify enantiomeric pairs, diastereomeric pairs; identify those that may be achiral (meso-); therefore determine how many real isomers can exist. 3. 3. Label any stereocenter(s) of dash-wedge structural formulas as ‘R’ or
