Enantiomer

Enantiomer Definition:

Enantiomers are pairs of molecules that are not superimposable on their mirror image. i.e they ARE mirror images of each other

Enantiomer Explained:

Every chiral molecule has one non-superimposable mirror image. The original molecule and its mirror image are called enantiomers. Hence, every chiral compound has exactly one enantiomer. The mirror image is, therefore, an entirely different molecule.
