Organic Chemistry 3 - Exercise 7
Isoleucine is a natural α-amino acid with two chiral centers. Its formula is C6H13NO2.
Draw the skeletal structure of the Isoleucine. Draw a Fischer projection of 2 diastereomers of the Isoleucine.
1) α-amino acid:
2) Formula: C6H13NO2 + 2 chiral centers
Isoceuline is a natural α-amino ⇒ acid α-carbon is S:
