X(C9H14) one mole gives 1 mole ethanal+2 moles glycerol+ 1 moles propanal
Find the no. of stereoisomers possible for compound X
Ethanal has 2 carbons, propanal has 3 carbons and glycerol has 3 carbons (2 moles) therefore there are 11 carbons but the m.f. of X is C9H16 i,e, 9 carbons am I missing something?
