Problem 20P

The cyclohexane chair just drawn has the headrest to the left and the footrest to the right. Draw a cyclohexane chair with its axial and equatorial bonds, having the headrest to the right and the footrest to the left.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 20P

Draw the headrest and footrest carbons, and draw the lines connecting them to the armrests. The two lines connecting the headrest carbon should be parallel to the two lines connecting the footrest.

Notice that the C-C framework uses lines with only three different slopes, labeled and

Cyclohexane chair with the headrest to the right and the footrest to the left.

The axial bonds are drawn vertically, either up or down.

The equatorial bonds take more thought. Each carbon atom is represented by a vertex formed by two lines, having two of the possible slope  and . Each equatorial bond

should have the third slope: the slope that is not represented by two lines forming the vertex.

Showing both axial and equatorial bonds in cyclohexane chair having headrest to the right and the footrest to the left:
