Resource summary

Isomerism
  1. structural isomerism
    1. structural formula
      1. the number and type of each atom in a molecule
      2. displayed formula
        1. shows all the bonds as straight lines
        2. alkenes
          1. contain the C=C functional group
          2. haloalkanes
            1. atleast one of the hydrogen atoms is replaced by a Halogen atom
            2. position isomers
              1. when compounds have the same molecular formula and functional groups but the functional group is on different parts on the carbon chain
            3. stereoisomers
              1. E-Z isomers
                1. Z isomers
                  1. if both the highest priority groups are above the double bond or both below
                  2. E isomers
                    1. if one ofthe highest priortiy groups is above the double bond and the other is below
                2. optical isomers
                  1. stereochemistry and drugs
