Enantiomerism

Chemistry isomerism in which the molecules in their configuration are related to one another like an object and its mirror image (enantiomers) and, consequently, are not superimposable; enantiomerism entails optical activity, both enantiomers (in identical amounts) rotating the plane of polarized light equally, but in opposite directions.
