Question

2-Bromobutane is optically active but 1-Bromobutane is optically inactive. Why?


Solution



2-bromobutane is a chiral molecule as it contains an asymmetric carbon atom therefore, it is optically active whereas 1-bromobutane is an achiral molecule as it does not contain an asymmetric carbon atom therefore it is optically inactive.
