Stable chair conformations with substituents

Postby 504656498 » Tue Mar 08, 2016 7:29 pm

How do I know whether to draw substituents as axial or equatorial orientations?

How does adding substituents such as functional groups or halides change this orientation?

The substituents prefer to be in the equatorial position because they are farther away from each other in this postion because when they are in the axial position, there tends to be more unfavorable interactions with other axial atoms.
