Problem: Albuterol, shown here, is a commonly prescribed asthma medication. For either enantiomer of albuterol, draw a three-dimensional formula using dashes and wedges for bonds that are not in the plane of the paper. Choose a perspective that allows as many carbon atoms as possible to be in the plane of the paper, and show all unshared electron pairs and hydrogen atoms (except those on the methyl groups labeled Me). Specify the (R,S) configuration of the enantiomer you drew.
