Winter 2012 Final Q8C

Postby Alan Chien 1J » Fri Mar 11, 2016 10:28 pm

Why is the propyl group attached on the very bottom chair carbon? Could we have put ethyl and methyl there instead, and put the propyl on an adjacent carbon?

Yes. As long as your numbering and axial/equatorial representation is correct, it does not matter which carbon you start at to begin your numbering scheme on the 3D projection.
