In your name, be sure to include the correct stereochemicai designation for any chiral center using the R/S system. IN NAMING A CHIRAL CENTER, YOU MUST SHOW THE PRIORITY (highest priority = 1 or a) THAT YOU HAVE ASSIGNED TO EACH GROUP. THE CONFIGURATION YOU GIVE MUST BE CONSISTENT WITH THE PRIORITIES YOU ASSIGNED. DO NOT ASSIGN PRIORITIES TO THE GROUPS ON ACHIRAL CARBONS. A Qeriodic table is rovided at the end of the test.

(22) Tartaric acid is one of the main acids found in wine and is added to foods to give them a sour taste. A Fischer projection of one of the two enantiomers of tartaric acid is shown below. In part a of this problem, three structures are given that represent possible stereoisomers of tartaric acid. This problem will take you through the process of determining the stereochemical relationship of each of the three structures to the given enantiomer of tartaric acid. COOH a. (15, 5 each) In the space below each of the following structures, draw a H OH tartaric acid Fischer projection of the same structure that has been arranged with the Ho H two COOH groups at the top and bottom so that it can easily be compared COOH with the structure that is given to the left.

(6, 2 each) Beneath each of the structures you drew in answering part a above, tell whether your structure represents the identical compound as was given for tartaric acid at the beginning of this problem, is the enantiomer of that compound, or is a diastereomer of that compound. REMEMBER: Difi‘erent conformations of a compound that can be interchanged by rotations around single bonds are not considered to be different comgounds, c.
