4 Stereochemistry of Alkanes and Cycloalkanes Based on McMurry s Organic Chemistry 6th edition Chapter 4 The Shapes of Molecules n The threedimensional shapes of molecules result from many forces a A molecule may assume different shapes called conformations that are in equilibrium at room temperature the conformational isomers are called conformers emphasis on the first syllable El The systematic study of the shapes molecules and properties from these shapes is stereochemistry n The field of stereochemistry is one of the central parts of organic chemistry and includes many important topics 2
