We’re being asked to select all of the chirality centers in the structure in the given molecule.
Recall that a stereocenter is an atom that creates stereoisomers after swapping groups. There are two types of stereocenter:
• Chiral center: an atom with 4 different substituents
• Trigonal center: a double bond capable of forming E/Z isomers
Select all of the chirality centers in the structure. A selected atom will turn green.
