Same configuration (R or S) for enantiomer  identical  

  • Both given structures (left) → have chiral centers → connected to 4 different groups → forms enantiomers 
  • higher atomic mass → higher priority (1 - highest, 4 - lowest)
    • When 4th priority is at the back (dash)
      • S → counterclockwise
      • R → clockwise
    • When 4th priority is not at the back 
      • exchange priority with group in the dashed line
      • S → clockwise (flipped)
      • R → counterclockwise (flipped)
