Fischer Projection

IUPAC & GOC of Class 12

German chemist Emil Fischer, proposed the “Fischer projection” concept to simplify the displaying of stereo – chemical relationship of carbohydrates.

Fischer projection is the representation of tetrahedral carbon atoms as a two – dimensional structure on paper. In this projection, molecule arranged with the horizontal bonds along with chiral centre projecting above the plane of the page. The vertical bonds projecting behind the page. Main chain of molecule arranged by vertical lines and most important functional group is placed at the top.
