Unformatted text preview: the isolated compounds are each optically active . Finally, when A is exposed to O 3 , followed by (CH 3 ) 2 S, the only product isolated is 5-oxoheptanal (structure shown below). Given this information, propose structures for the unknown compounds A , B , C , and D . Write your answers in the appropriate boxes in the reaction scheme provided below. Be sure to show stereochemistry clearly and unambiguously in all of the structures that you draw!
