# What does S configuration mean?

R and S are used to describe the configuration of a chirality center. Chirality center meaning that there are 4 different groups attached to one carbon. To determine whether the chirality center is R or S you have to first **prioritize all four groups connected to the chirality center. Then, rotate the molecule so that the fourth priority group is on a dash (pointing away from you). Finally, determine whether the sequence 1-2-3 is (R) clockwise or (S) counterclockwise.** Hope this helps.
