    The compounds which are capable of optical rotation are said to be optically active compounds. All the chiral compounds are optically active. The chiral compound contains an asymmetric center where the carbon is attached with four different atoms or groups. It forms two non-superimposable mirror images. The number of optical isomers in a compound is determined by the number of chiral centres in it. A chiral centre is a carbon atom that is bonded to four different molecules or atoms. Each chiral centre will result in two different optical isomers.
