Other questions in this quiz

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

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

3. Define a racemic mixture

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

4. What isomerism happens because of c=c bond?

  • postional
  • optical
  • E/Z (geometric)
  • functional groups

5. Why?

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