-could polarimetry experiment be used to find the r and s isomer?

**DrBob222**, Tuesday, November 18, 2008 at 2:07pmYes, I think it can. This problem has been posted before and I suggested diluting the sample by a factor of 10 and measuring the rotation. If the original was indeed 140 degrees, then the new measurement would show 14.0 degrees. If the original measurement was -220 degrees, the new measurement would be -22.0 degrees. There would be no confusion between +14 and -22. Check my thinking.
