Axial and Equatorial Bonds

Postby Tiffany_Hoang_3C » Tue Mar 14, 2017 3:26 pm

How do I identify which bond is the axial bond and which is the equatorial bond? And how do I know in which direction to draw them?

Equatorial bonds are perpendicular to the ring, whereas axial bonds are parallel.

Hope that helps!
