The molecule is chiral. Can the enantiomers be isolated? Stonemason89 (talk) 23:23, 24 May 2010 (UTC)

It isn't chiral - there is rotation around the central axis. Swotboy2000 (talk) 13:06, 20 April 2011 (UTC)

Swotboy2000: you need to re-read that chapter on dissymmetry. Stonemason89: no things like this and H2O2 cannot be resolved because the racemization is too rapid.--Smokefoot (talk) 13:20, 20 April 2011 (UTC)
Smokefoot: Well, using that argument, BrH2CCH2Br is chiral too. There is no barrier to rotation, and so it isn't chiral. Swotboy2000 (talk) 15:23, 18 May 2012 (UTC)
