    1. Consider the following ether whose structural formula is:
    a) Draw the ring in its moststable chair conformation.
    b) Identify each sterocenter in the molecule.
    c) Draw different steroisomers of the structure.

    2. Identify the following structures as chiral, achiral and/or meso. Decide if the pairs are isomers, stereoisomers, enatiomers, diasteromers or identical compounds.

    Each "*" is attached to 4 different groups.


    There are 2 chiral centers, so there are 22 = 4 stereoisomers.

    a)The Newman projection for the second one is

    This is the same as the other one (they can be rotated ...
