Lesson Flashcards: Structural Isomerism Chemistry

Isomers

Molecules with the same molecular formula but different arrangements of atoms

Positional isomers

Molecules with the same molecular formula and functional groups but different positions of the functional group on the carbon chain

Functional group isomers

Molecules with the same molecular formula but different functional groups

Chain isomers

Molecules with the same molecular formula but different arrangements of the carbon chain

Structural isomers

Molecules that have the same molecular formula but differ in how their atoms are connected
