Textbook and Chapter: Carey and Giuliano 8th Ed. (2010), Chapter 7

Keywords: chiral resolution, Fischer projections, R and S configuration, stereochemistry

Description: This mendel set covers various stereochemistry topics, such as:

  • Assigning R/S configuration
  • Fischer projections
  • Identifying meso molecules
  • Stereoselective reactions (are the products racemic or optically active?)
  • Chiral resolutions

Total Problems: 8

Problem # 532

Let's work through a chiral resolution. Write out the structure of the indicated compound in each box. Include stereochemistry.

Why is it possible to separate the (R,R) and (R,S) salts?
