Cis and Trans Stability for Chairs

Postby Alex Nguyen 3I » Sun Mar 13, 2016 12:07 am

How could you tell which chair is more stable given that they both have two substituents in the equatorial position, one being cis and the other being trans? I don't have a specific molecule, but would it depend on where the substituents are located (possibly further away being more stable)? Also, I don't mean cis and trans for the same 2 carbons. 1,2 cis vs 1,2 trans. I just meant wherever you can get cis both equatorial and trans both equatorial (is this possible)?
