OK I now have 35, here they are. Probably still not finished! Everyone's suggestions included I hope.

Great going discodermolide :)

Can we have the other cis and trans 2-chloro-3-methyloxiranes? Propanoyl chloride? And the organic chlorites 408 mentions?


Actually, perhaps we should stop here as I just noticed the OP hasn't come back...

OK I'll not post anymore until the OP comes back.
I will include anymore suggestions and post them all tomorrow, is that OK?

It's still fun. :)  Thanks @discoderm.

I tried marking the steroisomers  (14 sets) ; so there seem 21 structural isomers. In case it helps....

I don't think those are redundant, they are enantiomers and thus different. The others are cis/trans isomers.

OK, there have been no more contributions, not even from the OP. My final tally is 37. They are pictured. Let me know about duplicates etc.

Thanks! This is fascinating.

Next challenge might be to decide which ones are actually stable, known compounds...

That's a different question >:D
I have no SciFinder access so I have no way of carrying out your suggestion in a reasonable fashion.
