Questions 1 8
An organic compound having a carbon attached to four different groups is optically active. But the opposite is not
necessarily true, i.e. not all optically active organic compounds have chiral carbons. Presence or absence of chiral centre
is not the sufficient criterion for optical activity. The ultimate criterion is presence or absence of either plane or centre of
symmetry. Two compounds which are non- superimposable mirror images of each other are called enantiomers.
If a compound contains more than one chiral carbon, new words are required to describe the relationship between various
stereoisomers of the compound. Those words are diastereomers and mesomers.

Unit 2
Questions 9 13
Acidic and basic nature of organic compound depends upon inductive effect. Acidic strength of organic acid increases
with increase in electron withdrawing group or I group and decreases with increase in electron releasing group or +I
group. Basic strength of organic compound having just opposite relationship with inductive effect, i.e. basic strength
+I effect 1/-I effect. The other factor which explains acidic strength is distance of electron withdrawing group.
An acid dissociation constant, Ka, (also known as acidity constant, or acid-ionization constant) is a quantitative measure
of the strength of an acid in solution. It is the equilibrium constant for a chemical reaction known as dissociation in the
context of acid-base reactions.

Questions 14 - 15
Following two graphs are based on the conductometric titration (Titration based on changes in the electrical conductance
of a solution) of acid-base reaction. The underlying principles of conductometric titration are that the solvent and any
molecular species in solution exhibit only negligible conductance; and the conductance of a dilute solution rises as the
concentration of ions is increased. It is accepted that in a given concentration, the hydrogen ion and the hydroxyl ion are
much better conductors than any of the other ions.
Answer the questions given at the end of it.

Electrolytic reduction of Al2O3: At 900C, Fluorspar (CaF2) is used to make Al2O3 a good conductor of electricity. As
cryolite has greater electrochemical stability, it does not dissociate itself but increases the dissociation of Al 2O3. Metallic
aluminium is liberated at the cathode.

Unit 5
Questions 21 25
In organic compounds, coordination compounds often show various types of isomerism. The isomerism can be
categorized in two main types:
(A) Structural isomerism
(B) Stereo or space isomerism
Structural isomerism arises due to the difference in structures of coordination compounds while stereo or space
isomerism arises on account of the different positions and arrangements of ligands (atoms or groups) in space around the
metal ion.
Stuctural isomerism can be classified in following types:
