Stereochemistry is the study of these physical structures and interpretation of their different properties. The simplest isomerism is for a compound to exist in two equivalent forms, known as cis and trans isomers, forming mirror images of each other. This optical isomerism is commonly called enantiomerism. The so-called racemic mixture contains 50:50 cis:trans; but properties of cis and trans are seldom the same, so the synthesis may be designed to favor more cis or more trans for reasons of cost versus benefit.
