moles = mass in gram / molar mass
3) Pick up any reactant, say A, and use the stoichiometry to

amount of B.
a) If required > available, then B is the limi ...

Four compounds having the formula C4H6O2 have the IR and NMR data given
below. How many DBEs (double bond equivalents—see p. 75 in the textbook)
are there in C4H6O2? What are the structures of the four compounds? You
might again find it useful to draw a few structures to start with.

Enantioselective synthesis, also called chiral synthesis or asymmetric synthesis, is defined by IUPAC as: a chemical reaction (or reaction sequence) in which one or more new elements of chirality are formed in a substrate molecule and which produces the stereoisomeric (enantiomeric or diastereoisomeric) products in unequal amounts.Put more simply: it is the synthesis of a compound by a method that favors the formation of a specific enantiomer or diastereomer.Enantioselective synthesis is a key process in modern chemistry and is particularly important in the field of pharmaceuticals, as the different enantiomers or diastereomers of a molecule often have different biological activity.
