Question

Racemic mixture is optically inactive due to:


A
internal compensation
loader
B
external compensation
loader
C
inversion
loader
D
plane of symmetry
loader

Solution

The correct option is A external compensation
The racemic mixture or $$(\pm)$$ or $$dl$$(dextro leavo) is optically inactive due to external compensation and its specific rotation is also zero.
When equal amounts of 2 enantiomers are mixed together, it gives an optically inactive form called Racemic mixture.
