Test: Optical Isomerism - Question 1

### The number of optically active optical isomers of the compound is:

Detailed Solution for Test: Optical Isomerism - Question 1

The number of optically active isomers = 2n−1−2n−1/2 ​=23−1−23−1/2 ​=2.

Test: Optical Isomerism - Question 2

### Find the number of stereoisomers for CH3 – CHOH – CH = CH – CH3.

Detailed Solution for Test: Optical Isomerism - Question 2

The number of stereoisomers for CH3 – CHOH – CH = CH – CH3 is four. This is calculated by the formula 2n+1. where n is number of chiral centres, which is 1 in this case. So, 21+1 = 22= 4

### A hydrocarbon X is optically. X upon hydrogenation gives an optically inactive alkane Y. Which of the following pair of compounds can be X and Y respectively?

Detailed Solution for Test: Optical Isomerism - Question 3

The correct answer is Option B.
The optically active hydrocarbon X is 3-methyl-1-pentene CH2=CH−CH(CH3)CH2CH3​. On catalytic hydrogenation, it forms 3-methyl pentane CH3CH2CH(CH3)CH2CH3, which is optically inactive.

The correct answer is option D.
Pair of enantiomers react differently with pure enantiomers of other compounds.

Test: Optical Isomerism - Question 5

How many different stereoisomers exist for the compound below ?

Detailed Solution for Test: Optical Isomerism - Question 5

If you name the C attached to Me group as C1 and naming the rest clockwise, you observe that at C1 and C2 there are chiral centers and C5 and C2 are symmetrical. So the two chiral centers produce 2×2=4 optically active(and distinguishable) compounds. Hence, B is the answer.

Test: Optical Isomerism - Question 11

Consider the following free radical chlorination reaction.

The correct statement about product(s) is/are

Detailed Solution for Test: Optical Isomerism - Question 11

There are 4 final products, they are as follow:-

2 products of the structure above due to presence of a chiral carbon.

1 product of structure above due to absence of Chiral Carbon.

1 product of structure above due to absence of Chiral Carbon.

Hence, Options A, B are correct.

*Multiple options can be correct
Test: Optical Isomerism - Question 12

Detailed Solution for Test: Optical Isomerism - Question 12
• Trichlorocyclobutane has total seven isomers
• It has two meso isomers
• One isomer is devoid of any chiral carbon
*Multiple options can be correct
Test: Optical Isomerism - Question 13

The correct statement (s) about the compound

is/are

[IIT JEE 2009]

Detailed Solution for Test: Optical Isomerism - Question 13

The correct options are A & D
Since a carbon-carbon double bond is present, the molecule can have either cis isomer or trans isomer.
In cis isomer (which is symmetrical), the number of enantiomers is
2(n−1)=2(2−1)=2
The number of meso compounds possible is 2(n/2)−1=2(2/2)−1=1
Hence, the total number of optical isomers possible is 2+1=3.
Trans isomer is also symmetrical.
Hence, the total number of optical isomers possible for trans isomers is also 3.
Hence, the total number of stereoisomers possible for X is 3+3=6.
Hence, option A is correct and option B is incorrect.
If the stereochemistry about the double bond in X is trans, the number of enantiomers possible for X is 4.
Thus, the option C is incorrect.
If the stereochemistry about the double bond in X is cis, the number of enantiomers possible for X is 2.
Thus the option D is correct.

*Multiple options can be correct
Test: Optical Isomerism - Question 14

The correct statement(s) about the compound given below is/are

Detailed Solution for Test: Optical Isomerism - Question 14

The correct answer is option A & D
The given image is Self-Explanatory.
We know that following are the cases when a compound is Optically Inactive:
1. When it does not have a chiral Carbon Atom eg.: Methyl bromide
2. When it has a Plane or Axis of Symmetry eg.: Tartaric Acid (these compounds are called as Meso Compounds)
3. When it forms a Racemic Mixture eg.: Equimolar mixture of d-Lactic Acid and l-Lactic Acid.
The given compound in the question possesses an Axis of Symmetry (shown in the attached image). Hence, it is Optically Inactive.

*Multiple options can be correct
Test: Optical Isomerism - Question 15

• M and O are identical
• M and P are enantiomers

Test: Optical Isomerism - Question 16

The number of optical isomers possible for 2, 3-pentanediol is:

Detailed Solution for Test: Optical Isomerism - Question 16

2 optical centers.
Total optically active isomers =22
=4

Test: Optical Isomerism - Question 17

The minimum number of C atoms required for a hydrocarbon to exhibit optical isomerism:

Detailed Solution for Test: Optical Isomerism - Question 17

The minimum number of C atoms required for a hydrocarbon to exhibit optical isomerism = 7

*Multiple options can be correct
Test: Optical Isomerism - Question 18

Which of the following statements is/are correct regarding the below compound?

Detailed Solution for Test: Optical Isomerism - Question 18

Correct option is
A:
It is optically inactive due to the plane of symmetry &

B: It is optically inactive due to the center of symmetry

The presence of any kind of symmetry makes the compound optically inactive.

Test: Optical Isomerism - Question 19

Which of the following are not functional isomers of each other?

Detailed Solution for Test: Optical Isomerism - Question 19

Functional isomers are structural isomers that have the same molecular formula (that is, the same number of atoms of the same elements), but the atoms are connected in different ways so that the groupings are dissimilar or different functional groups.

10 amine to different 10 amines are not functional isomers.

Hence, option ′d′ is the answer.

Test: Optical Isomerism - Question 20

A pair of enantiomers is possible for _______ isomer of 2,2-dibromobicyclo [2.2.1] heptane.

Detailed Solution for Test: Optical Isomerism - Question 20

Only one pair of enantiomers is possible for cis-2,2-dibromobicyclo [2.2.1] heptane. The trans arrangement of one carbon bridge is structurally impossible. Such a molecule would have too much strain.
