Other questions in this quiz

2. How can you test if a compund is optically active?

  • If they rotate a plane of polarised light
  • If the rotate a plane of light
  • add NaOH
  • cross your fingers and hope

3. Why?

  • because thats how chemistry works
  • because planar ion can be attcked by nucleophile from either side
  • because planar ion can only be attacked by nucleophile from one side

4. Define Stereoisomers

  • different molecualr formula but are arranged the same in the space
  • same molecular formula but are arranged differently in the space
  • different molecualr formula and are arranged differently in the space
  • same molecular formula and are arranged the same in the space

5. Define a racemic mixture

  • contains only 1 enantiomer of an optically active compound
  • contains equal quantities of each enantiomer of an optically active compound (50/50)
  • contains similar quantites of each enantiomer of an optically active compound
