diastereomers. An Example of Diastereomers
To summarize, compare the cis and trans isomers of 2-butene. How are they
related? They have the same connectivity, yet they are not superimposable;
therefore, they are stereoisomers. However, they are not related as an object
and its mirror image. Therefore, they are diastereomers. compare
H3C CH3 and
H3C cis-2-butene trans-2-butene isomer classification tests
