Beschrijving

Chirality is an important geometric property relating to a molecule's symmetry. A chiral molecule is non-superimposable with its mirror ​image, and has a "handedness" (think of shoes, which specifically go with a right or left foot). An achiral molecule is superimposable with its mirror image and ​do not have "handedness" (think of a baseball bat, which can be used with either hand).

Organic chemistry
