Unformatted text preview: optical rotation, then you need to look at the question again. For example, sometimes youll see a question like which of the following would rotate light 1 clockwise? followed by a series of solutions. All but one of the answers will be achiral, so the answer is the only chiral answer. You might have an achiral molecule, an equal mixture of enantiomers, an equal mixture of diastereomers, and another achiral molecule. The correct answer would be the mixture of diastereomers because it is the only chiral solution given. o Chemical properties Chiral materials react with other chiral reactants selectively Think of the glove and hand model here If you have a bunch of right-handed gloves only right hands will fit. o Separation of enantiomers...
