Some complexes which can have non-superimposable mirror image can exhibit optical isomerism. Dextro isomer rotatesplane of polarised right towards light and laevoisomer rotates plane of polarised light towards left

Optical isomers: are molecules that differ three-dimensionally by the placement of substituents around one or more atoms in a molecule. Optical isomers were given their name because they were first able to be distinguished by how they rotated plane-polarized light.

Optical isomers are two compounds which contain the same number and kinds of atoms, and bonds  and different spatial arrangements of the atoms, but which have non-superimposable mirror images.
