Dear anuvrat



no.of isomers for a organic compound can be calculated by using formula 2n


 where n : no.of chiral / asymmetric carbon.


               Asymmetric carbon is the carbon atom whose 4 valencies are satisfied by 4 different monovalent atoms or groups.


 Ex. : 1. lactic acid CHCH3OHCOOH


                 It contains 1 chiral carbon, hence 2n i.e. 21 = 2 optical isomers are possible


         2. glucose contain 4 chiral carbons, hence 24 = 16 optical isomers are possible etc.


All the best.
