Question

# An optically active alkene (I) with lowest molecular mass on hydrogenation gives optically inactive alkane, but on insertion of methylene carbene $$\left(:C{H}_{2}\right)$$ in (I), it gives optically active compound (II). The compounds (I) and (II) are:

A
P
B
P, R
C
P, Q
D
P, Q, R
E
All

Solution

## The correct option is C P, QAn optically active alkene (I) with lowest molecular mass on hydrogenation gives optically inactive alkane, but on insertion of methylene carbene $$\left(:C{H}_{2}\right)$$ in (I), it gives optically active compound (II). The compounds (I) and (II) are P, Q.as in P and Q, both (I) and (II) are optically active.Chemistry
