Problem 25P

Problem 25SP

The following four structures are naturally occuring optically active compounds. Star (*) the asymmetric carbon atoms in these structures.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 25SP

For all time place least priority group away from us.

If the sequence 123 is clockwise then configuration is R.

If the sequence 123  is counter-clockwise then configuration is S.

a) The second carbon in serine is asymmetric. The amino group receives first priority, the –COOH group second priority, the -CH2OH group third, and the hydrogen fourth.

Here least priority group towards to us so this is found to be the (S) configuration

(S)-2-amino-3-hydroxypropanoic acid

b) The C2 and C3 are asymmetric carbons in erythrose

     erythrose
