How would you change the chirality of a compound such that (S,R) becomes (S,S)? That is how would you synthesise a compound from its diastereomer?
Considering the Sn1 reaction of (S)-2,3-dimethyl-3-pentanol, knowing that this molecule has a chiral carbon, should I always assume that both enantiomers are present, and therefore the products of a ...
I am trying to figure out the configuration for this chiral carbon to answer a homework question, however they arbitrarily include a "D" group as shown in the image. My guess is that it is some higher ...
Are there any heuristics to get the relative absorbtion of left and right circularly polarized light by a molecule from its molecular structure? Is it even possible to predict which polarization is ...
