Chemistry S-20ab Week 2 82 Some Important Vocabulary Words Enantiomers : stereoisomers that are non-superimposable mirror images Chirality : the property of having a non-superimposable mirror image How can I tell if a molecule is chiral? 1. Does it have a stereogenic center? Generalizations: ! If a molecule has 0 stereogenic centers, it is achiral . ! If a molecule has a single stereogenic center, it is chiral . ! If a molecule has >1 stereogenic centers, we must consider another property. CH 3 OH H 3 C CH 3 OH OH H H CH 3 OH H H 3 C 2. Is there an internal plane of symmetry in the molecule? Any molecule that has a plane of symmetry will be achiral. Any molecule that lacks a plane of symmetrty will be chiral . • For each of the following molecules, determine whether it is chiral or achiral. If it is chiral, draw its enantiomer.

! 1 " 23-4+# Here are the rules for naming enantiomers: Assign R or S conFgurations to each of the following compounds: Br H F Cl H Cl OH CH 3 C H 2 H OH CH 3 H CH 2 H 3 C H 3 C 1 2 OH H 3 C H H 2 C 3 4 CH 3 4 3 2 1 2. OH CH 3 H CH 2 H 3 C 1. Rank the groups attached to the stereocenter in priority order - as for E & Z nomenclature of alkenes. The greater the atomic number, the greater the priority. Use the
