Explain geometric isomerism in alkenes. How do the properties of geometric isomers differ from one another?
Solution 15EStep 1Geometric isomerism is possible in alkenes because rotation about C=C double bond isrestricted.It is the another form of stereoisomerism.Rotation around a double bond restricted because it would involve breaking the pi bond.
