Homework Help: Chem

Posted by Jenny on Tuesday, October 2, 2007 at 9:56pm.

How do I estimate the optical roation of an (S)-enantiomer if I know the optical rotation to the (R)-enantiomer?

For instance, for limonene, after conducting an experiment, I got that the optical rotation for the (R)-enantiomer was 10, would the (S) be -10?

Any help would be great.
