why is the toxicity of (+)-carvone in rats is about 400 times greater than that of(-)-carvone?

asked by stephie
  1. Probably because of Chiral recognition, there are more chiral receptor for (+)-carvone in rats.
    This is just my guess.

    If you were relying on IR data alone,could you determine if you had the (+) or (-) form of carvone? why or why not? suggest one other method for detection.
