Draw the correct structure for cis-1,3-dichlorocyclopentane. Show stereochemistry clearly. To ensure proper grading, explicitly draw all four groups, including wedge/dash bonds, around a chirality center. Indicate whether the compound could exist in an optically active form.
a) could exist in optically active form
b) cannot exist in optically active form
c) cannot be determined
The organic compound which rotates plane-polarized light either in left or in the right direction then that compound is known as optically active. Only the chiral compound rotates plane-polarized light.
