  1. enantiomorphism

    Enantiomorphism is a concept in crystallography and chemistry that refers to the characteristic of certain crystals or molecules having a non-superimposable mirror image, similar to left and right hands. This property is associated with a lack of internal plane of symmetry or center of symmetry. In other words, enantiomorphism refers to the mirror-image relationship between two structures that are identical in every way except for being mirror images of each other, just like our left and right hands. These mirror-image pairs are called enantiomers or enantiomorphic pairs.
