Identify the relationship in each of the following pairs. Do the drawings represent constitutional
isomers or stereoisomers, or are they just different ways of drawing the same compound?
If they are stereoisomers, are they enantiomers or diastereomers?
The enzyme aconitase catalyzes the hydration of aconitic acid to two products: citric acid
and isocitric acid. Isocitric acid is optically active; citric acid is not. What are the respective constitutions of
citric acid and isocitric acid?
A compound (C6H10) contains a five-membered ring. When Br2 adds to it, two diastereomeric dibromides
