We’re being asked to determine the relationship between each pair of structures.
• enantiomers are non-superimposable, mirror images
• diastereomers are non-superimposable, non-mirror images
We can quickly identify the relationship by determining the mirror image one of the molecules.
For each pair of disubstituted cyclohexane structures below, determine whether they are identical, diastereomers or enantiomers.
