    Your question doesn't make much sense. You need to be more specific. Are you talking about optical activity?

    Here's some sites which may help

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Optical_isomerism" [Broken]

    Also remember that there is no substitute for a good book. If you can, pick up an organic text and read the relevant part.
