Hi. I have a problem and I need help solving it.
I have this molecule, which is a male produced sex pheromone (component) of a beetle. I know that it (3,5-dimethyl-6-(1-methylbutyl)-pyran-2-one) is chiral and I've identified the chiral center. But I'm an ecologist, not a chemist and it's been a few years since I've attended organic chemistry classes. Can you guys help me determine which of the bottom two in the image is the S and R enantiomer and an explanation would be welcome as well. Did I even draw these correctly?
Thank you in advance.
