Fischer Projection Stereochemistry Finding R and S for Single and Multiple Chiral Centers

Fischer projection stereochemistry r s for single and multiple chiral centers (1)Finding chirality for a 2-dimensional Fischer projection can be tricky.
But it doesn’t have to be.
This video shows you how to prioritize and rank groups on a Fischer projection when you have one or more chiral center. This video also addresses chirality when group #4 (H) is not going down/into the page
