Stereochemistry and Isomerism
Stereochemistry deals with the three-dimensional structure and properties of molecules. It explains the arrangement of atoms and their manipulation within a molecule in a 3D structure. Stereochemistry can be dealt with all types of molecules. Based on the stereochemistry of a molecule, the physical and chemical properties of the molecules vary.
