stereo isomers are of 2 types.geometrical and optical


optical isomerism is part of stereo isomerism.
optical isomers differ from each other in the position of
various atoms or groups of atoms in space around the
asymmetric carbon atom.
these are the mirror images of each other.
for ex glyceraldehyde has only one asymmetric carbon and it
exists in 2 isomerc forms i.e D and L forms.
