Organic Lecture Series 3 • Isomers: Isomers: Different compounds with the same molecular formula. • Constitutional isomers: Constitutional isomers: Isomers with a different connectivity. • Stereoisomers Stereoisomers : Isomers with the same connectivity but a different orientation of their atoms in space. Isomers Isomers Organic Lecture Series 4 • Chiral Chiral : From the Greek, cheir , hand – an object that is not superposable on its mirror image. • Achiral Achiral : An object that lacks chirality; one that lacks handedness. – An achiral object has at least one element of symmetry.

Organic Lecture Series 5 – An achiral object has at least one element of symmetry: – Plane of symmetry: Plane of symmetry: An imaginary plane passing through an object dividing it so that one half is the mirror image of the other half. – Center of symmetry: Center of symmetry: A point so situated that identical components of the object are located on opposite sides and equidistant from that point along any axis passing through it.
