Solution: Meropenem is an injectable, broad spectrum antibiotic that is frequently used for the treatment of bacterial meningitis and pneumonia. The line-angle structure of Meropenem given below is drawn in a manner that shows the absolute stereochemistry clearly and unambiguously. This molecule contains several chiral centers, three of which are labeled 13, 14, and 15. The one alkene double bond present is labeled 19.
