# What is the difference between enantiomers and chirals?

So imagine a carbon centre with 4 distinct substituents, i.e. $C {R}_{1} {R}_{2} {R}_{3} {R}_{4}$ (the $R$ can be ethyl, methyl, halogen, oxygen, as long as they are different. Because there are 4 different substituents attached to this carbon, this is a CHIRAL centre, capable of generating a pair (i.e. 2) of enantiomers, non-superposable mirror images.
