    Chiral forms
    Yeah sorry. The way I understood chirality is with the hand metaphor. Essentially, the mirror image of the molecule is called the enantiomer. Chirality is this mirror imaging. Your left hand is like a mirror image of your right hand. Enantiomers differ in the same, way. You don't shake hands with someone when one uses left hand and the other uses right, they just don't fit together. Thats kinda how it is. It changes the way they work. Does that make more sense?

    Stimulants are a class of drugs that enhance brain activity. Stimulants( also called "uppers") are chemicals that stimulate the brain and the central nervous system by increasing the state of mental alertness, attention, and energy that is accompanied by elevated blood pressure and increased heart rate and respiration. Stimulants have the opposite effect of depressants, or "downers". They usually have side-effects and if you take them for an extended period of time, you may become dependent upon them.
