Conformation

 

A molecular geometry that differs from other geometries chiefly by rotation about single or triple bonds; distinct conformations (termed con formers) are associated with distinct potential wells. Typical biomolecules and products of organic synthesis can interconvert among many conformations; typical diamondoid structures are locked into a single potential well, and thus lack conformational flexibility.

A property of a molecule that includes its shape, the way that its folded as well as interactions with other molecules.
