Unformatted text preview: The line-angle structure given below is drawn in a manner which shows the absolute stereochemistry of the molecule clearly and unambiguously. Please look at this line-angle structure, and determine the total number of chiral centers present in artemisinin. Write your answer in the appropriate box. Several (but not all) of these chiral centers are marked with arrows. In the box associated with each arrow, indicate the stereochemical configuration of the chiral center as ( R ) or ( S ) . Total number of chiral centers present = O O H O H O O H Artemisinin...
