Structural isomers differ in the covalent arrangement of their atoms. Isomers Isomers Geometric isomers Geometric isomers ( cis cis trans trans isomers) isomers) different spatial arrangements different spatial arrangements cis-2-butene (b) Geometric isomers. Geometric, or cistrans , isomers have identical covalent bonds but differ in the order in which groups are arranged in space. trans-2-butene Isomers Isomers Enantiomers Enantiomers mirror images mirror images (c) Enantiomers. Enantiomers are isomers that are mirror images of one another. The central carbon is asymmetrical because it is bonded to four different...
