Structural isomers
They have the same molecular formula but a different structural formula.
1 of 7
Chain-branching isomers
They have the same molecular formula but a different arrangement of the carbon chain.
2 of 7
Positional isomers
They have the same molecular formula and chain length, but differ by the position of the functional group.
3 of 7
Functional isomers
They have the same molecular formula but different functional groups.
4 of 7
Stereo isomers
They have the same molecular formula but a different arrangement of atoms in space.
5 of 7
Geometric isomers
They occur in alkenes only because of the restricted rotation about the double bond caused by the pi bond.
6 of 7
Optical isomers
They have the same molecular formula but interact with plane polarised light differently.
