Page 2 Louis Pasteur A. Pasteur and Molecular Asymmetry Pasteur was intrigued by the crystal shapes and optical properties of two substances isolated from the tartar deposited in the barrels of maturing wines. A solution of the major component, (+)-tartaric acid, rotated the plane of polarized light clockwise, that is, in a positive, right-handed direction (hence the designation (+)). The minor component, paratartaric or racemic acid (Latin: racemus, a bunch of grapes), although chemically identical exhibited no optical activity.

Similarly, if the approach of the reagent Page 22 Figure 120. Enantiotopic faces of a prochiral olefin. from either one or the other face of a molecule leads to a pair of diastereomers then the faces are diastereotopic (as in Reaction 14 in Figure 117). In this case, a chiral reagent is not required for stereoselectivity. A convenient system for the specification of enantiotopic and diastereotopic groups or faces was developed by Hanson [15]. , an olefin), the three substituents are ranked according to the Cahn-Ingold-Prelog priority rule and, looking from a given side, their orientation is determined (Figure 121).
