# General doubt in isomerism

My doubt is is the compound above chiral or not?

Please can anyone tell in conformation?

Hey @neelesh vij This compound is chiral because its mirror image is non-superimposable. · 6 months ago

This is chiral. There is a central carbon bonding with 4 different compounds. · 6 months ago

In my opinion it's chiral, if one side you take E isomer and the other side the Z isomer the it would be an enantiomer and hence optically active · 6 months, 1 week ago

I guess it is not but I am not sure · 6 months, 1 week ago

What are your observations here? · 6 months, 1 week ago

the points to favor is that both the two groups are same but they are cis and trans so the compound can be chiral. but i am not sure that's why i asked this. · 6 months, 1 week ago

It is chiral carbon Because the left and right sides when are opposite (cis and trans ) the make the poparised light to rotate · 6 months, 1 week ago

But I dont see any chiral carbon in the structure.. Do you? ANd if thats true than the compound should be achiral... · 6 months, 1 week ago

The central carbon, the one connected to the two double bonds has 4 different groups. · 6 months, 1 week ago

No only 3 are different- methhyl,chlorine and other two are same- I guess.. · 6 months, 1 week ago

One is the trans compound, the other is the cis one. · 6 months, 1 week ago

Oh Now I see... Thanks.. :) · 6 months, 1 week ago

but the cis and trans carbons will rotate the light equally in opposite directions (as all the groups are same) so there will be no effect due to them. my main point is that whether the middle carbon will be chiral or not. · 6 months, 1 week ago

How are you saying the cis and trans groups will rotate light in equal and opposite directions? I agree with @Gauri shankar Mishra, the compound is chiral. · 6 months, 1 week ago

Umm. i am not sure about the statement. I thought it similar to R and S configuration. so does that mean geometrical isomers do not rotate light? · 6 months, 1 week ago

See buddy that lack of symmetry makes a compound chiral .and also tell me the question of himanshu and ms in which u have problem · 6 months, 1 week ago

I too have doubt in himanshu Rest are done and can be explained by me( ms questions) · 6 months, 1 week ago

I Think that This Compound Is Chiral . The central chiral atom is called pseudo chiral as the groups attached to the carbon can be different due to stereoisomerism. · 6 months, 1 week ago

Me too.......same explanation...I am with you · 6 months, 1 week ago
