Answer:

They are important because two isomers can have the same chemical formula, but have different chemical structures. The structure contributes to the properties of the molecule.

Explanation:

One isomer can have a single bond while another isomer has double or triple bonding, which means that the isomer is unsaturated and is open to bonding with other molecules, while the single bonded one is saturated and not as open to bonding.
