Naming with cis/trans

Postby Orly Termeie 3I » Thu Mar 10, 2016 7:41 pm

If asked to draw the conformation of a cyclohexane and it has more than two substituents do we still use cis/trans to name it? Also do we only use cis and trans for cyclohexane or all types of cyclos?

No, when naming a cyclic molecule you only use cis/trans or E/Z when there are 2 substituents.
