Stability

Postby Dianna Grigorian 1C » Fri Mar 17, 2017 1:44 pm

What are the most stable cyclohexane conformations in order? Can you also explain what the favorable conformation for the substituents is as well
Thanks!

The most stable conformation for a cyclohexane is the chair conformations with your largest substituent bonding to the highest carbon through an equatorial bond. There is also the boat conformation that is not stable at all because of the steric interactions.
