enantiomer problem
« on: November 29, 2004, 10:25:00 AM »
Greetings everyone!

I have a question regarding enantiomers.  If 3 moles of ethyne undergoes oxymercuration-demercuration, will its product form a single enantiomer, a pair of enantiomer, or a constitutional isomer?  My bet is a pair of enantiomer, but I am not sure about this...

Hope to receive replies from u guys.  Thanks.

Regards,
Tashkent

The product wouldn't be chiral with ethyne, would it?
