Problem 25P

(a) Draw both chair conformations of cis-1,4-dimethylcyclohexane, and determine which conformer is more stable.

(b) Repeat for the trans isomer.

(c) Predict which isomer (cis or trans) is more stable.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3 Answer:Explanation:

trans-1,4-Dimethylcyclohexane

1. Structure

Draw the two cyclohexane chairs, with C-1 on the right.

In each structure, put the methyl group on C-1 "down" and the methyl group on C-4"up".

This gives you trans-1,4-dimethylcyclohexane.

2. Identical

The two structures are not identical, because the two methyl groups are equatorial in one isomer and axial in the other.

I have never heard of conformational enantiomers or conformational diastereomers. But there are conformational isomers, enantiomers, and diastereomers.

3. Conformational isomers

These are conformational isomers. because one form can be converted into another by a ring "flip" without breaking any bonds.

4. Enantiomers or diastereomers?

These are neither enantiomers nor diastereomers, because they...
