    Stereochemistry Post Lab Report Reference: Experimental Organic Chemistry: A Miniscale and Microscale Approach, 6th ed., by Gilbert and Martin, Chapter 7 Discussion: The main purpose of this experiment was to study the mechanism of the isomerization of dimethyl maleate to dimethyl fumarate as well as to explore the different properties of enantiomers using (R) and (S) Carvone oils, such as polarimetry and odor. A percent yield was calculated based upon the original amount of dimethyl maleate added

  • Essay about Organic Chemistry Ii Lab Report

    In the first reaction of this experiment, 1-phenylethanol was reacted with vinyl acetate, using the acylase I enzyme. The enzyme’s chirality results in a preferred reaction with one alcohol enantiomer over the other. In the second reaction, the unreacted alcohol is reacted with (R)-(-)-acetoxyphenylacetic acid to create a diastereomer. By comparing the 1H-NMR spectra of the final product

  • Drugs And Its Effects On The Field Of Medicine And Pharmacology Today

    1866 Words  | 8 Pages

    The chirality of drugs has become important to understand in the field of medicine and pharmacology today. Asymmetric approaches have been under investigation to synthesize chiral centers or separate enantiomers of chiral molecules using chemical catalysts or enantioselective enzymes. With this is in mind, the experiment performed in lab today exhibits the use of an enzyme catalyzed reduction to fashion a chiral center. In this experiment, the enzymatic asymmetric reduction of 1-phenyl-1,2-propanedione

  • Stereochemical Dependence for dSp

    1653 Words  | 7 Pages

    Interestingly, studies from our laboratory and others have demonstrated a stereochemical dependence for dSp processing by enzymes in ODNs. The first instance of a dSp diastereomer difference was reported from our laboratory when Klenow Fragment (exo-) was allowed to insert dATP opposite the isomers for which dSp1-containing ODNs were found to be the more favorable substrate for insertion and bypass.32 This study was extended to in vivo experiments by Neeley, et al. to include pol II and pol IV

    Name: Chen Yao Le Lab Group: Tues Email: Matriculation Number: A0111185R Date of Experiment: 17 February 2015 Experiment 6: Synthesis, Electronic Spectra, Structural Isomerism: Octahedral Co(III) complexes with Chloride and Ethylenediamine Ligands Abstract: In this experiment, Δ/Λ-[Co(en)3]Cl3∙4H2O was synthesized and the absorbance in UV-vis spectrum was recorded

  • Measuring Chirality At Ibuprofen Using A Homemade Polarimeter

    1310 Words  | 6 Pages

    Measuring Chirality in Ibuprofen Using a Homemade Polarimeter Sydney Guerin December 9, 2016 May River High School Abstract For this project, I will be conducting multiple experiments regarding the chirality of different forms of ibuprofen. The question I’m trying to solve is whether or not common brands of ibuprofen have the same formulation. In order to perform this exercise, I will need to create a homemade polarimeter in order to measure the angle at which the brands of ibuprofen will reflect

  • Chirality – Isolation of Limonene from Citrus Fruits Essay

    2087 Words  | 9 Pages

    Chirality – Isolation of Limonene from Citrus Fruits Introduction: Terpenes are a large and varied class of hydrocarbons produced by a wide variety of plants. Many essential oils belong to the terpene class. They are made up of two or more five carbon units that are called isoprenes. Limonene is a terpene that can be separated from orange peels almost 100% in the (R)-(+)-limonene form. Other citrus fruits like lemons, grapefruits, limes, and tangerines contain the compound as well. The

  • Disappearing Spoon Chapter Summary

    868 Words  | 4 Pages

    by Sam Keane, the focus is placed on the interaction between elements and the human body. The reader is taken on a journey through the medical history of various metals, and their beneficial factors. The trip continues to the interesting topic of chirality, or “handedness” of different proteins. On the flipside, the deadly aspects of different elements, as well as their deceptive ways are discussed. These two chapters really grabbed my attention, as medical history has always been of interest to me

    the lone pairs on the atom. The bonds and lone pairs cause the molecule to bend into different shapes dependent on the number of bonds and lone pairs. They bend into a specific shape with different angle degrees. Chirality: Chirality refers to the “mirror image” of a molecule (“Chirality and Stereoisomers”). To identify a

    an energy source that preferentially generate optically active substance from prochiral substances and/or to preferentially decompose one enantiomer from racemic mixtures. On the other hand, weak CP-photon is used as a probe to detect substance chirality in the ground and photoexcited states, known as circular dichroism (CD), optical rotation dispersion (ORD) and circularly polarized luminescence (CPL) spectroscopy.1 Knowledge and understanding an efficient generation and reversibility of optically
