Draw the structure for di-(2S-bromo-3R-ethoxybutyl)acetylene

Configuration of the Compound :

The carbon atom which is attached to four different atoms or groups is called asymmetric carbon or chiral carbon. The chiral carbon is responsible for the existence of more than one structure of the organic compounds. These different structures have the same molecular formula and known as isomers. Different isomers of the same compounds possess different absolute configuration and can be distinguished from each other.
