# Chiral centers in albuterol-like compounds

My question is apart from the C in the straight chain with $\ce{-OH}$ group, should $\ce{N}$ be counted as chiral center since it also has tetrahedral geometry and all different substituents?

There are more such examples.

• Inversion at nitrogen chiral centres proceeds rapidly, so the answer is no. – orthocresol Nov 7 '15 at 16:08
