Which of the following pairs of compounds could be separated by recrystallization or distillation?
a) meso-tartaric acid and
Since meso and () tartaric acid are diastereomers. Hence, could be separated by their physical properties
Hence the pairs are diastereomers. Thus, pairs could be separated by their physical properties.
Pairs are same. Hence, cannot be separated.
Thus, the pairs from diastereomer, since first compounds of each compound are different. Hence, diastereomers. Thus, pairs could be separately by their physical properties.
