Stereochemistry of Organic Compounds

The study of stereoisomers  is stereochemistry. It is seen in biological, physical, organicinorganic and especially supramolecular chemistry. Stereochemistry plays a very vital role in our day to day life. Stereochemistry is the chemistry which deals with the different arrangement of atoms or groups in a molecule in space. The only physical property in which the two types of tartarate salts differed, is due to optical isomerism.  Structural Isomers are isomers which have the same molecular formula but differ in their structures. The list of different types of structural isomers is position isomer, chain Isomers, metamerism, and functional Isomers. Stereoisomers are isomers which have the same molecular formula and same structure but differ in the arrangement of atoms or groups in space. Stereoisomers can be classified into the following two types  Configurational Isomers and Conformational Isomers
  • Molecular chirality and enantiomers
  • Properties of chiral molecules and optical activity
  • The cahnIngoldPrelog RS notational system
  • Physical properties of enantiomers
  • Stereogenic center
