Organic Chemistry 1, Prof. Strongin, CH 334 section 1, Fall 2017 Chapter 9: Stereochemistry - Chiral molecules are stereoisomers that have non-superimposable mirror image - Enantiomers: The term for a molecule that is non-superimposable mirror image of another molecule - Chirality refers to an inherent property, however enantiomer refers to a specific relationship - A racemic mixture is the specific term referring to an equal (1:1) mixture of enantiomers. They are also achiral - Enantiomers have nearly identical physical properties. Same boiling points, melting points, and solubility in achiral solvents. - If there is a double or triple bonds the molecule can’t be chiral - Why chiral molecules are called “optical
