Chirality Questions - Need Answers Checked

  1. Oct 31, 2006 #1
    I had to answer true or false for the following five questions. If they were false, I had to explain why.

    1. In some cases, constitutional isomers are chiral. TRUE
    2. Every chiral compound has a diastereomer. TRUE
    3. Some diastereomers have mirror-image relationship. FALSE
    Diastereomers are not mirror images of each other.
    4. If a structure has no plane of symmetry it is chiral. TRUE
    5. If a compound has a diastereomer it must be chiral. FALSE
    Compounds without a chiral center (like an sp2 hybridized molecule) can have a diastereomer.

    So I need to know if my answers are correct. If not, why are my answers (if any) incorrect? Thanks.

    Skimming your answers, no guarantee, but they look good.
