🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Pirrung's class at UCR.

Solution: (a) Assign R-/S-descriptors of each stereocenter in the following compounds. (b) Draw the enantiomer of the left-hand structure and assign  R-/S-descriptors. (c) Draw a diastereomer of the middle structure and assign  R-/S-descriptors. (d) Circle the chiral diastereomer of the middle structure (tartaric acid).
