Solution: The following statements describe some important properties of molecules. Choose from among the following three types of isomers and in the space provided write the letter of the one or more types of isomers for which the statemetn is TRUE.A. A single enantiomer          B. A meso compound          C. A racemic mixtureA solution of this will rotate the plane of plane polarized light.   _________________A solution of this will NOT rotate the plane of plane polarized light.   _____________________Might be produced when an alkene with no chiral centers reacts with a non-chiral reagent such as H-Br or Br2.  ___________________The LEAST desirable option when developing a new drug  ___________________

Problem

The following statements describe some important properties of molecules. Choose from among the following three types of isomers and in the space provided write the letter of the one or more types of isomers for which the statemetn is TRUE.

A. A single enantiomer          B. A meso compound          C. A racemic mixture

A solution of this will rotate the plane of plane polarized light.   _________________
