cis conformation

Postby JukaKim_1D » Tue Mar 08, 2016 9:47 pm

If you have a cis conformation, would the substituents go on axial and axial or equatorial and equatorial? does it mean that it is in trans conformation if one of them was on axial and the other was equatorial?

I believe trans would be one substituent on axial and the other on equatorial. As for cis, the more stable confirmation would be if the larger substituents were both on the equatorial axis.

Page 115 in the course reader answers this if you're asking about a chair conformation!
