Amino acids are organic acids that contain amine as well as carboxyl functional groups with a side chain specific to all amino groups. They are linked by peptide bonds which form elongated string-like beads. Amino groups attached to the alpha-carbon are known as alpha amino acids, while the others are the L and D amino acids.

The alpha carbon is attached to about four groups, making it a chiral center. So amino acid molecules are optically active, with the only exception being glycine. The L and D amino acids are a mirror image of the other and are therefore said to be non-superimposable, meaning that there is no overlapping of the mirror image of the object over the real object if it is placed over the original object. L and D amino acids are referred to as enantiomers due to these characteristics.
