Homework Help: Enantiomers and isomers of c6h12

  1. May 19, 2010 #1
    alright so of the 38(as far as i know) isomers of C6H12 i have found 37/38 needing just one more,as well marks are included for enantiomers. but what im really looking for just one more(if any) enantiomers of C6H12. what i have so far is





    if anyone knows one more enantiomer that would be very appreciated

    Your list doesn't include the 37 that you have found.

    "Your list doesn't include the 37 that you have found."

    well, thats not really what im asking,and what difference does it make if i didnt put them there?

    I see, just looking for another enantiomer. What you have listed are structural isomers, not enantiomers, which are a special type of stereoisomer. Enantiomers are molecules that are non-superimposable mirror images of one another. If that is what you meant, you need to notate them properly to indicate the pair.
