Chem 261 F06 Dr. Mbadugha Allene Chirality Exercise Soln Key Using your molecular model kits, determine if any of the following allenes is/are chiral: 1. 2-methyl-2,3-hexadiene – achiral allene 2. 4-methyl-2,3-hexadiene – chiral allene (has chirality axis and can have two non- superimposable mirror images or enantiomers) 3. 2,4-dimethyl-2,3-pentadiene – achiral allene 4. 2,3-pentadiene – chiral allene

Unformatted text preview: What conclusions can you draw about the potential chirality of 1,3-disubstituted allenes? Can be chiral if the two single bonds on C-1 are to two different atoms or groups and the two single bonds on C-3 are to two different atoms or groups (the total number of different atoms or groups does not have to be four but C-1 and C-3 should each have bonds to two different atoms or groups)....
