Problem 38SP

When pure (S)-lactic acid is esterified by racemic butan-2-ol, the product is 2-butyl lactate, with the following structure:

(a) Draw three-dimensional structures of the two stereoisomers formed, specifying the configuration at each asymmetric carbon atom. (Using your models may be helpful.)

(b) Determine the relationship between the two stereoisomers you have drawn.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution:

Step 1

(a)Here we have to draw three-dimensional structures of the two stereoisomers of lactic acid and  butan-2-ol formed  the product is 2-butyl lactate
