Isomers are different compounds with the same chemical formula. Constitutional isomers have different patterns of connectivity of the atoms. Stereoisomers have the same pattern of atom connectivity, but the atoms have different arrangements in space. Stereoisomers may not be interconverted by rotation about single bonds; bond breaking is required. Stereoisomers may be isolated one from the other and kept in pure form. Different conformations of a compound are not isomeric structures. They are different arrangements in space of the atoms of the same compound achieved by rotation about a single bond. They are rarely isolable in pure form. Feedback:

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
