Is this molecule in its active form racemic?
It's not a chiral molecule, so there are no optical isomers, correct?
of Course the molecule has chiral carbon. the carbon at position 2 has four different group attached ; the Et and Met group, and Hydrogen and Thiazole or ring group
the molecule can form a racemic mixture. it has an asymmetric carbon at position 2. However, i do not know which form is the active one. or maybe, both form are active.
