Stereo chemistry

Stereochemistry, a subdiscipline of chemistry, involves the study of the relative spatial arrangement of atoms that form the structure of molecules and their manipulation.
A branch of chemistry that deals with the spatial arrangement of atoms and groups in molecules.

2 : the spatial arrangement of atoms and groups in a compound and its relation to the properties of the compound.
Stereoisomers are molecules that have the same molecular formula and sequence of bonded atoms, but differ in the three-dimensional orientations of their atoms in space. There are two kinds of stereoisomers: geometric and optical.
Stereochemistry is a subdiscipline of chemistry. It is involved in the study of relative spatial arrangement of atoms that form the structure of molecules and their manipulation. Chiral molecule is an important branch of stereochemistry.
Enantiomers are non-superimposable mirror images of each other. Enantiomers are mirror images of each other which are known as stereoisomers. Diastereomers are also non-superimposable but are not mirror images of each other. Diastereomers are not mirrored images of each other which are known as stereoisomers.
