Name _____________________ Page 1 I. (26 points) A. Vincamine is an alkaloid natural product that is used as a nootropic agent (a class of drugs that treat impaired cognitive abilities) to combat the effects of aging. It acts as a vasodilator, and increases blood flow to the brain. The structure of vincamine is provided below. (a) Circle all of the tetrahedral carbon stereocenters and clearly assign the stereochemical configuration for each stereocenter ( R or S ). N N H O H 3 C OH Vincamine 9 S each stereocenter circled with correct R/S label = 3 each circle around an atom that is not a stereocenter = –1 (b) Check the boxes next to all (c) Draw the enantiomer of vincamine true statements about vincamine: Vincamine Is a chiral molecule. Has a chiral enantiomer. Has one meso stereoisomer. Has an achiral diastereomer. Has six chiral diastereomers. Is not optically active. 3 5 N N H O O H 3 C OH no partial X X X –2 for noncritical transcription error. Otherwise no partial. B. Using lines, dashes, and wedges to indicate stereochemistry when appropriate, draw the structure of ( E )-(2 S ,6 R )-6-bromo-5,5-diethyl-1-iodo-7-methyloct-3-en-2-ol. 9 I HO H H Br –2 for each error in stereochemistry, regiochemistry, or substituent type wedges/dashes on ethyl groups are optional
