  • question_answer Which one of the following is the chiral molecule [BHU 1998; 2005]

    A) \[C{{H}_{3}}Cl\]

    B) \[C{{H}_{2}}C{{l}_{2}}\]

    C) \[CHB{{r}_{3}}\]

    D) \[CHClBrI\]

    Correct Answer: D

    Solution :

    \[\overset{H\,\,}{\mathop{\overset{{{|}_{*}}\,\,\,}{\mathop{\underset{Cl}{\mathop{\underset{|\,\,\,}{\mathop{I-C-Br}}\,}}\,}}\,}}\,\] A carbon atom which is attached to four different atoms or groups is called a chiral or asymmetric carbon atom. such a carbon atom is often marked by an asterisk.
