About This Quiz & Worksheet

With these assessments, you can quiz how much you know about the difference between enantiomers and diastereomers. Topics include molecules that are enantiomers of each other and molecules that are diastereomers of one another.

Quiz & Worksheet Goals

The following areas will be considered on the multiple-choice quiz:

  • Major difference between enantiomers and diastereomers
  • Enantiomer of D-glucose
  • Steps to determine the difference between an enantiomer and a diastereomer

Skills Practiced

  • Distinguishing differences - compare and contrast enantiomers and diastereomers
  • Information recall - access the knowledge you've gained regarding the enantiomer of D-glucose
  • Knowledge application - use your knowledge to answer questions about molecules that are diastereomers/enantiomers of each other and the process of determining the difference between these compounds
