F Br F Br All the R/S designations will be changed in enantiomers If there is a double bond, then its stereochemistry (cis/trans) will remain the same. Br Br o A diastereomer is a non-superimposible non-mirror image. F Br F Br Some but not all of the R/S designations will change. Cis/trans double bonds make your molecules diastereomers as well. Br Br How do enantiomers differ from one another? o Physical properties Most are identical
