  • Isomerism
    • Structural Isomer: Compounds with the same molecular formula but different structural formulae
      • Chain isomers: Where the carbon chain is arranged differently
      • Position Isomer: functional group can be moved.
      • Functional Group: making different functional groups.
    • Stereoisomer: Compounds with the same structural formula but with a different arrangement in space.
      • Two requirements for E/Z isomerism: -two different groups to be attached to each carbon atom of the c=c group. -A c=c which restricts rotation.
      • Cis - SAME SIDE. Trans-OPPOSITE SIDE.
