Each atom bonded to the chiral center is assigned a priority based on atomic number; the higher the atomic number, the higher the priority2. If priority cannot be assigned per the atoms bonded to the chiral center, look to the next set of atoms; priority is assigned at the first point of difference(53)(35)(17)(16)(8)(7)(6)(1)Increasing priority- H -CH3 -NH2 - OH - SH - Cl - Br - IIncreasing priority(8)(7)(6)(1)-CH2-OH- CH2-NH2- CH2-CH3-CH2-H3-...
