Unformatted text preview: recitation practice material. Note: It is very important to remember that Chemistry is a cumulative topic and that the material that was covered in previous chapters needs to be reviewed as this material will continue to reappear in concepts that are needed to solve new problems. 1. Draw an example of a chiral molecule that has one chiral carbon. 2. What are enantiomers? 3. Draw a pair of enantiomers that have one chiral center and the formula C 5 H 12 BrN. 4. Draw a pair of diastereomers that have two chiral centers and the formula C 5 H 12 BrN. 5. Are all of the physical properties of a pair of enantiomers the same? Explain. 6. What is a polarimeter used for? 7. What is a racemic mixture? 8. Are chiral drugs optically active? Explain. 9. Will all enzymes react the same way with two compounds that are enantiomers? Explain. 10. A compound has three chiral centers. How many stereoisomers are possible for this compound?...
