Chair conformations Cis and Trans

Postby JavierMelgoza2E » Sat Mar 18, 2017 6:20 pm

I was wondering whether Cis was with both being the same orientation or the same direction. Can it still be Cis with a an equatorial up and equatorial down or would that be considered Trans? Thanks!

How do you know when a carbon chain substituent is smaller or larger than a halogen substituent?

that would be considered trans. In order for it to be Cis the direction must be the same; whether or not they are both equatorial or axial is unrelated.
