Chemistry

On a practice exam, we have a question that says "How many enantiomers does kendomycin have?"
It says the answer is 1, but I don't understand why? (You probably have to google a picture of kendomycin!!)

  1. If you Google that long name you find an explanation that it has 1 chiral carbon which leads to 1 enantiometer. Find the 1 chiral C atom. If you can't find more than that, then 1 enantiometer is it.
