Chem test this morning
« on: October 06, 2006, 03:53:24 PM »
ok... so i had an O chem test this morning and i cant stop thinking about this one problem, so for any of you Ochem gurus help me relax...

the question was on designating chirality centers, R or S, and prioritizng the ligands attached to the carbon...

The Following were the ligands and what i prioritized them..

NH2-1
CC-2
CH2-3
H-4


I originally had ch2 before cc, but i thought that since carbon was higher in atomic number than H, it would come before becuase you would be looking at the second substituent if the first was the same.

thanks.
