Gauche

Postby Dianna Grigorian 1C » Fri Mar 10, 2017 2:37 pm

Can someone please describe the gauche conformation and any of its distinct features? I understand that it is the second most stable state and is staggered, but is there a certain way to identify it?

It will be a staggered conformation and generally have the two largest groups next to each other (60 deg apart) rather than the optimal 180 deg.
