Dear Hemanth

2-Butanol is chiral and thus can be obtained as either of two stereoisomers designated as (R)-(−)-2-butanol and (S)-(+)-2-butanol.

It is normally found as an equal mixture of the two stereoisomers — a racemic mixture.

 

Please feel free to post as many doubts on our discussion forum as you can.we will get you the answer and detailed  solution very  quickly.

All the best.

so it is optically active compound.
