The R(-)-isomer of adrenaline is more potent. Its orientation allows its benzylic hydroyxl to form a hydrogen bond with Serine410 whereas this doesn't happen with S(-)-isomers of adrenaline.

Which isomer packs more efficiently in the solid phase Cis isomer or Trans Isomer?

Trans isomer packs more efficiently in the solid phase compared to cis isomer. This is because trans isomers have a linear structure that allows them to stack more closely together, leading to stronger intermolecular interactions and more efficient packing.

Why the trans-benzalacetophenone isomer is major product in aldol condensation?

The trans-benzalacetophenone isomer is the major product in aldol condensation because it is more thermodynamically stable due to the extended conjugation in the molecule, leading to a more favorable resonance stabilization. The trans isomer also experiences less steric hindrance compared to the cis isomer, making it the preferred product.

Difference between D L Sugars?

D and L are optical isomer of each other, or non superimposible mirror images. The convention uses Glyceraldhyde as the reference. In a fisher projection the OH of glyceraldehyde is on the right side ( more improtantly in the R configuration)in the D isomer and on the left side ( or the molecule is in the L configuration) in the L isomer. So for all other sugars it looks at the last chiral center for the molecule if the chiral center is R it is a D isomer if the last chiral center is in the S configuration it is an L isomer.
