The 8 isomers of pentose are in the carbohydrate family and are characterized as simple sugars, or monosaccharide's. The asymmetric chiral centers generally refer to the presence of interaction with polarized light.
Aldoheptoses have seven carbon atoms and one chiral center, so they can have a maximum of 2^1 = 2 enantiomers.
Here is some information about the 13 Archimedean solids:Tetrahedron-related:1) The truncated tetrahedron has 12 vertices, 18 edges, & 8 faces (4 triangles & 4 hexagons).Cube-related:2) The truncated cube has 24 vertices, 36 edges, & 14 faces (8 triangles & 6 octagons). Also known as a truncated hexahedron.3) The truncated octahedron has 24 vertices, 36 edges, & 14 faces (6 squares & 8 hexagons).4) The cuboctahedron has 12 verticies, 24 edges, & 14 faces (8 triangles & 6 squares).5) The small rhombicuboctahedron has 24 vertices, 48 edges, & 26 faces (8 triangles & 18 squares). Also known simply as a rhombicuboctahedron.6) The great rhombicuboctahedron has 48 vertices, 72 edges, & 26 faces (12 squares, 8 hexagons, & 6 octagons). Also known as a truncated cuboctahedron.7) The snub cube has 24 vertices, 60 edges, & 38 faces (32 triangles & 6 squares). Also known variously as a snub hexahedron, snub octahedron, or snub cuboctahedron. This shape, along with the snub dodecahedron, has 2 chiral forms.Icosahedron-related:8) The truncated icosahedron has 60 vertices, 90 edges, & 32 faces (12 pentagons & 20 hexagons). Also known as a buckyball or a football/soccer ball.9) The truncated dodecahedron has 60 vertices, 90 edges, & 32 faces (20 triangles & 12 decagons).10) The icosidodecahedron has 30 vertices, 60 edges, & 32 faces (20 triangles & 12 pentagons).11) The small rhombicosidodecahedron has 60 vertices, 120 edges, & 62 faces (20 triangles, 30 squares, & 12 pentagons). Also known simply as a rhombicosidodecahedron.12) The great rhombicosidodecahedron has 120 vertices, 180 edges, & 62 faces (30 squares, 20 hexagons, & 12 decagons). Also known as a truncated icosidodecahedron.13) The snub dodecahedron has 60 vertices, 150 edges, & 92 faces (80 triangles & 12 pentagons). Also known as a snub icosahedron or a snub icosidodecahedron. This shape, along with the snub cube, has 2 chiral forms.
Glucose is a Chiral molecule having 4 chiral carbons.
No, SiF4 does not have a chiral center.
Yes, it is chiral
is 1-2-dibromobutane chiral
Based on its structure, it does NOT have a chiral center so NO
it is a chiral molecule as all groups attached to it are different
The structure appears to have 8 chiral carbons.
There are 5 chiral carbon atoms in norethynodred.
No, chiral and achiral are the opposite of each other. Achiral means a compound is superimposable on its mirror image, chiral means it isn't, so it can't be both.
There are four chiral centeres -pHd in Chemical Engeinerring from the Universty of Cambridge
Chiral carbon is the carbon which is connected to four different groups in a molecule.
No, there are no chiral centres.
