a. 1. Chiral- A molecule with a nonsuperimposable mirror image. 2. enantiomers (right and left)- Molecules made of the same structure but arranged differently. They are nonsuperimposable mirror images of each other. 3. Racemic-A mixture containing both right and left-handed enantiomers. Both enantiomers are usually present in equal amounts. 4. dextrorotatory and levorotatory A dextrorotary substance when exposed to polarized light will rotate the light clockwise. A levoratory substance while rotate the same light counterclockwise. 5. left-handed protein and right handed protein: Two chiral forms of the same protein. They are commonly referred to as L and D respectively. 6. Cis, trans- In cis The same substituent groups are located on the sane side of the molecule. In trans they are located on opposite sides of the molecule. 7. Fac, mer - A mer molecule has a visible meridian. A fac molecule is not divided up as well and lacks the meridian. 8. Stereoisomer-
