Dear ankit,

Stereoisomers are compounds that have atoms in a different spatial, three-dimensional orientation, even though the atoms are connected in the same order and have the same molecular formula. The classic example of these is that of a mirror image between compounds, like a right and left hand. Compounds that differ in this manner are known as enantiomers. They can be differentiated in how they rotate polarized light. One compound can have different atoms that have stereoisomers, and these are known as chiral centers.
