what are enantiomers?
Asked by mimilogic | 12th Nov, 2010, 12:00: AM
Molecules which are non-superimposable mirror images of each other are known as enantiomers. For example our palms are enantiomers of each other.
Enantiomers can exist when there is an asymmetric carbon atom within the molecule, i.e., a carbon that is attached to four different fragments. For example 2-chlorobutane.
these are enatiomers of each other.
We hope that clarifies your query.
