Molecules can be chiralPairs of #molecules which are non-superposable mirror images of one another are called enantiomers. Enantiomers are examples of stereoisomers: #molecules which differ only in the #spatial#arrangement of #atoms.
Another test for chirality is to assess whether the object itself has a mirror planeof symmetry or point of symmetry (point of inversion). Objects (molecules) with mirror planes or centers of inversion are achiral (NOT chiral). Objects (molecules) without a mirror plane or point of inversion are chiral. They are non-superposable on their mirror images.
