What are steroisomers

What are steroisomers?


Stereoisomers are compounds made up of the same atoms and bonded by the same sequence of bonds, but having different three dimensional (3D) structures. The different 3D structures are called configurations and are not interchangeable. Two stereoisomers cannot superimpose. Thus, even when two molecules contain the same functional groups but are stereoisomers organisms can usually distinguish between them.
