About This Quiz & Worksheet

This printable worksheet/interactive quiz combo will test how much you know about the differences between chiral and enantiomers. When you answer the questions, keep in mind some important areas of study, including a description of chiral and a basic explanation of enantiomers.

Quiz & Worksheet Goals

You'll be covering the following topics on the quiz:

  • Number of chiral centers in a molecule
  • The number of stereoisomers in a molecule with three chiral centers
  • Selecting the enantiomer of a given molecule

Skills Practiced

  • Defining key concepts - make sure you can accurately define 'enantiomers' and 'chiral'
  • Making connections - use your understanding of stereoisomers and how they're connected to a molecule with three chiral centers
  • Information recall - access the knowledge you've gained regarding the number of chiral centers in a molecule

Additional Learning

You can keep exploring these two organic chemistry concepts in the lesson titled Difference Between Chiral & Enantiomers. The main areas you'll be covering are listed below:

  • Structure of a molecule 5-chloro-2-hexanol
  • Stereoisomers of an enantiomer
  • Enantiomers with chiral centers in the molecule
