Stereoisomerism is the beginning of every name.
The configuration of any double bonds or stereocenters is identified.
You don't need to worry about this part of the name if there are no double bonds or stereocenters in the molecule.
You have to learn how to identify the configuration of each.
A chapter is needed to identify the configuration of a stereocenter.
Chapter 7 will cover these topics in detail.
We will revisit how to identify the configuration in the name of the molecule at that time.
The first part of a name has configurations in it.
This is very different from the case with single bonds, which are always on.
All of the atoms are connected in the same order if you compare them in one of the two possibilities.
Stereoisomers are called this because of the difference of orientation in space.
Two groups can be hydrogen atoms.
The compounds are not the same.
When there are different groups on the double bond, we have to use another method for naming them.
The alternative method can be used to name any double bond.
There are two chlorine atoms on one side of the double bond.
We get the other drawing if we flip over the first one.
They are the same thing.
Take two pieces of paper.
One of these compounds can be drawn on one piece of paper and the other on another piece of paper.
You can see the drawing through the back side of the paper if you hold the piece of paper up to the light.
You can see that they are the same if you compare it to the other drawing.
