Stereocentre- If there is no plane of symmetry in the molecule of an organic compound, we say it is having a stereocentre.

 

Chiral Centre/Chiral Carbon Atom - If in a moelcule there is a carbon atom such that it is linked to four different atoms or groups, we say it is having chiral carbon atom.Example-Lactic acid
