Write a structural formula for the most stable conformation of each of the following compounds:
So, let's go ahead and come up with the most stable chair conformation for this, so guys we can go ahead and say that we've got cis, right? The one in four positions and trans the one and two positions here and we can say two and 4 but what's important now is that we go ahead and draw our chair conformation and we keep track of this information. So one, let's say that it's both on the wedge, so what that means it's going up, let's call this the one position, two, right? It's going down, so it's going to look like that and then three is going to be over here, right? Well, it's our F 4 is going to be over here, so we're going to have up in equatorial. Now, we've got two axial positions and one equatorial it can be do better? yeah, right? All we need to do is give ourselves a chair flip, so we get something like that now and now that means, and now what that means is that this is over here it's going to be an equatorial position, this down here is now also going to be an equatorial position, right? since it shifted up here and now this four position, right? It was going up and now it's going to be in the axial position, so this is by far the more, the better confirmation, right? to have more of your substituents of the same size, right? in equatorial positions, so guys, let me know if you have any questions, if not, let's move on.
