Stereoisomerism - short version

Polymer isomerism in which side groups within mer units are bonded along the molecular chain in the same order, but in different spatial arrangements.



Stereoisomerism - long version

Stereoisomers are isomeric molecules that have the same molecular formula and sequence of bonded atoms (constitution), but that differ only in the three-dimensional orientations of their atoms in space. This contrasts with structural isomers, which share the same molecular formula, but the bond connections and/or their order differ(s) between different atoms/groups. In stereoisomers, the order and bond connections of the constituent atoms remain the same, but their orientation in space differ.
