1,3-diaxial interactions

1,3-diaxial interactions Investigate steric interactions in cyclohexane derivatives. Tasks Create and optimize a cyclohexane molecule Add methyl substituents to 1 and 3 positions in diequatorial positions, optimize and note the energy Delete diequatorial substituents, to return to cyclohexane, optimize again Place methyl substituents in 1,3-diaxial positions, optimize and note the movement of the groups and the energy Solution Categories: Teaching Updated: February 13, 2017 Share on Twitter Facebook Google+ Reddit
