what is difference between enantiomer and enantiomorph
enantio- + -mer
enantiomer (plural enantiomers)
- (chemistry) One of a pair of stereoisomers that is the mirror image of the other, but may not be superimposed on this other stereoisomer. Almost always, a pair of enantiomers contain at least one chiral center, and a sample of either enantiomer will be optically active.
- optical isomer
- dextro-, D-
- levo-, L-
- namirotene, renominate
From Ancient Greek ἐναντίος (enantíos, “opposite”) + μορφή (morphḗ, “form”).
enantiomorph (plural enantiomorphs)
- A mirror image, a form related to another as an object is to its image in a mirror.
- Either of a pair of crystals that are mirror images of each other, and are optically active.
- (chemistry) A similar molecule or compound; an enantiomer.
