Isomers

  1. Isomers
    Compounds with the same molecular formula but have different structures
  2. Definition: Constitutional Isomers
    Same MF but with different connectivity
  3. Definition: Stereoisomers
    Isomers (same MF but different in some way) with the same connectivity but diff arrangement in space (ex, front vs back)
  4. Definition: Diastereomers
    Steroeisomer with some but not all different chiral center configurations
  5. Enantiomers
    • Steroeisomer with all diff chiral center configuration and no plane of symmetry
    • MIRROR IMAGES
  6. Meso Compounds
    Identical molecules with all diff chiral center configuration; achiral molecules with a plane of symmetry
