Tip of the day
Re: organic chemistry
Nature is highly selective in all and every aspect. For example, cholesterol having 8 stereogenic centers, so totally 2 to the power 8= 256 stereoisomers are possible, even out of which only one isomer exists in nature therefore nature accepts one isomer and reject or ignore the other isomer, if it ignores no problem but if rejects then that will be harmful
Re: organic chemistry
Enantiomers, also known as optical isomers, are two stereoisomers that are related to each other by a reflection: They are mirror images to each other that are non-superimposable. Human hands are a macroscopic analog of stereoisomerism.
