Quarks Quarks are thought to be elementary point particles like leptons with no internal structure but unlike other particles have fractional charges. Each quark has got either positive or negative charge equal to fraction Of an electrical charge and is assigned a specific quantum number. Original three quarks were labelled as up(u) ,down (d), and stange(s), along with their antiparticles, […]

What is a racemic mixture?

On the basis of Optical activity the compounds or isomers can be classified into two types:- Those rotate the plane polarised light towards right called the dextro rotatory compounds. Those rotate the plane polarised light towards left are called Laevo rotatory compounds. The equimolar composition of the above two isomers is called racemic mixture.
