Problem 5P

For each compound, determine whether the molecule has an internal mirror plane of symmetry. If it does, draw the mirror plane on a three-dimensional drawing of the molecule. If the molecule does not have an internal mirror plane, determine whether or not the structure is chiral.

(a) methane (b) cis-1,2-dibromocyclobutane

(c) trans-1,2-dibromocyclobutane (d) 1,2-dichloropropane

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 5P

When there is an internal mirror plane the compound doesn’t exhibit chirality though it has asymmetric centers.

(Methane)

        It has internal mirror plane, so achiral.

(b)        cis-1,2-dibromocyclobutane

        It has internal mirror plane, so acrical.

(c)        -1,2-dibromocyclobutane

        It does not have any mirror plane internally. So molecule is chiral.

(d)        1,2-dochloropropane

There is an asymmetric carbon in the compound. Moreover there is no internal plane of symmetry. So the compound is chiral.

(e)

        There...
