How to use Asymmetric in a sentence
Although containing an asymmetric carbon atom it has not been resolved.
The aldehyde group reacts with hydrocyanic acid to produce two stereo-isomeric cyanhydrins; this isomerism is due to the conversion of an originally non-asymmetric carbon atom into an asymmetric one.
Since the molecule contains an asymmetric carbon atom, the acid exists in three forms, one being an inactive "racemic" mixture, and the other two being optically active forms. The inactive variety is known as paramandelic acid.
If the asymmetric system adjoining the COH group, which is that introduced in synthesizing the hexose from the pentose, be eliminated, the formulae at disposal for the two pentoses are CH 2 (OH) - - - COH CH 2 (OH)+-- COH.
Since the acid contains an asymmetric carbon atom, it can exist in three forms, a dextro-rotatory, a laevo-rotatory and an inactive form; the acid obtained in the various synthetical processes is the inactive form.Advertisement

T and L are symmetric tensors, while S is in general asymmetric.
Some cases, however, may be indistinguishable from Parkinson's disease, with an asymmetric onset and a resting tremor.
Some have begun to map such processes as they swept through mass mediated populations of the age of asymmetric warfare.Advertisement
If, however, two compounds only differ with regard to the spatial arrangement of the atoms, the physical properties may be (I) for the most part identical, differences, however, being apparent with regard to the action of the molecules on polarized light, as is the case when the configuration is due to the presence of an asymmetric atom (optical isomerism); or (2) both chemical and physical properties may be different when the configuration is determined by the disposition of the atoms or groups attached to a pair of doubly-linked atoms, or to two members of a ring system (geometrical isomerism or allo-isomerism).
Absence of rotary power when asymmetric carbon atoms are present, may be caused by an internal compensation within the molecule as with the inactive tartaric acid (mesotartaric acid), or may be due to the fact that the compound is an equimolecular mixture of leftand right-hand varieties, this being the case with racemic acid that was broken by Louis Pasteur into laevoand dextro-tartaric acid (see Stereo-Isomerism).
The Lebanese War was not, therefore, an asymmetric war confronting a well-equipped modern army with a ragtag band of guerillas.
Some cases, however, may be indistinguishable from Parkinson 's disease, with an asymmetric onset and a resting tremor.
We show, however, that asymmetric states can be moving solutions of the partial differential equation.Advertisement
This black lace evening dress by Lucia has a glamorous vintage style with asymmetric draping, an asymmetric flounce hemline and a lovely hand beaded design.
There is also the Harmala, an asymmetric jersey maxi dress with boning at the bust.
Asymmetric or handkerchief hems slim your lower half.
The affected muscles may be on both sides of the body (symmetric paralysis) but are often on unbalanced parts of the body (asymmetric paralysis).
Fever and asymmetric flaccid paralysis without sensory loss in a child or young adult almost always indicate poliomyelitis.Advertisement
This same preference for one side of the body may show up as asymmetric crawling or, later on, favoring one leg while climbing stairs.
Growth inhibition during stage two and three causes a decrease of cell size and fetal weight with less effect on total cell number and fetal length and head circumference, causing asymmetric IUGR.
Ultrasound is used to evaluate the growth of the baby and the ratio of the head circumference (HC) to the abdominal circumference (AC) is a good predictor of asymmetric IUGR.
Given their uneven cuts, it may seem odd that something as "imperfect" as an asymmetric garment could ever be deemed trendy.
Of course, exposing more skin than ever before is nothing new, but the asymmetric trend offers a classier and more elegant way to do so.
Asymmetric garments include tops, skirts and dresses, all of which feature necklines or hems that are deftly cut at varying degrees.
Note that asymmetric hems don't necessarily have to slant diagonally.
Clearly, you don't have to be incredibly brazen to pull off this look, given that there are so many asymmetric hem styles available for petite women.
Jill. The company's Pure Jill Asymmetric Dress is cut in an effortless A-line style and features a slightly asymmetric hem.
Most small businesses use asymmetric DSL (ADSL).
The proof of this statement rests on the fact that if the hydrogen atoms were not co-planar, then substitution derivatives (the substituting groups not containing asymmetric carbon atoms) should exist in enantiomorphic forms, differing in crystal form and in their action on polarized light; such optical antipodes have, however, not yet been separated.
Lowry and Armstrong represent these compounds by the following spatial formulae which postulate a y-oxidic structure, and 5 asymmetric carbon atoms, i.e.
It is seen that aldoses and ketoses which differ stereochemically in only the two final carbon atoms must yield the same osazone; and since d-mannose, d-glucose, and d-fructose do form the same osazone (d-glucosazone) differences either structural or stereochemical must be placed in the two final carbon atoms.3 It may here be noticed that in the sugars there are asymmetric carbon atoms, and consequently optical isomers are to be expected.
The plane projection of molecular structures which differ stereochemically is discussed under Stereoisomerism; in this place it suffices to say that, since the terminal groups of the hexaldose molecule are different and four asymmetric carbon atoms are present, sixteen hexaldoses are possible; and for the hexahydric alcohols which they yield on reduction, and the tetrahydric dicarboxylic acids which they give on oxidation, only ten forms are possible.
