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. Akul Agrawal · 8 months, 1 week ago

This is chiral. There is a central carbon bonding with 4 different compounds. James Wong · 8 months, 1 week 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 Aniket Sanghi · 8 months, 2 weeks ago

I guess it is not but I am not sure Ravi Teja · 8 months, 2 weeks ago

What are your observations here? Ameya Daigavane · 8 months, 2 weeks ago

@Ameya Daigavane 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. Neelesh Vij · 8 months, 2 weeks ago

@Neelesh Vij It is chiral carbon Because the left and right sides when are opposite (cis and trans ) the make the poparised light to rotate Gauri shankar Mishra · 8 months, 2 weeks ago

@Gauri shankar Mishra But I dont see any chiral carbon in the structure.. Do you? ANd if thats true than the compound should be achiral... Rishabh Cool · 8 months, 2 weeks ago

@Rishabh Cool The central carbon, the one connected to the two double bonds has 4 different groups. Ameya Daigavane · 8 months, 2 weeks ago

@Ameya Daigavane No only 3 are different- methhyl,chlorine and other two are same- I guess.. Rishabh Cool · 8 months, 2 weeks ago

@Rishabh Cool One is the trans compound, the other is the cis one. Ameya Daigavane · 8 months, 2 weeks ago

@Ameya Daigavane Oh Now I see... Thanks.. :) Rishabh Cool · 8 months, 2 weeks ago

@Gauri shankar Mishra 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. Neelesh Vij · 8 months, 2 weeks ago

@Neelesh Vij 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. Ameya Daigavane · 8 months, 2 weeks ago

@Ameya Daigavane 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? Neelesh Vij · 8 months, 2 weeks ago

@Neelesh Vij 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 Gauri shankar Mishra · 8 months, 2 weeks ago

@Neelesh Vij I too have doubt in himanshu Rest are done and can be explained by me( ms questions) Gauri shankar Mishra · 8 months, 2 weeks ago

@Neelesh Vij 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. Prakhar Bindal · 8 months, 2 weeks ago

@Prakhar Bindal Me too.......same explanation...I am with you Aniket Sanghi · 8 months, 2 weeks ago
