C357 PPS#8 Solutions Page 1 of 2 1) For each of the following compounds, decide which carbon atoms are stereocenters and then assign the absolute configuration (R,S) of each. 2) Describe how d and l configurations are determined for individual molecules. How compounds rotate plane polarized light 3) Does the d,l system have any relationship to the R,S system? If so, is a d molecule R or S? No. 4) Define an enantiomer. Non-superimposable mirror image. 5) What is a chiral compound? A compound that has an enantiomer. 6) Define Meso. A compound with >1 stereocenter that is achiral (has internal plane of symmetry. 7) Do all compounds rotate plane-polarized light? If so, why do pure chiral compounds show a net rotation of the light? All compounds rotate plane-polarized light. Chiral compounds show a net rotation because their mirror image is not present!

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
