Stereoisomers are compounds with the same structural formula and molecular formula but have a different arrangment in space.

EZ isomerism occurs in alkenes due to the double bond being unable to rotate.

The other form of stereoisomerism studied at alevel is optical isomerism. Optical ismomerism occurs when a carbon atom is attached to four
