Problem 42SP

Use a Newman projection, about the indicated bond, to draw the most stable conformer for each compound.

(a) 3-methylpentane about the C2-C3 bond

(b) 3,3-dimethylhexane about the C3-C4 bond

Step-by-Step Solution:

Answer :

Step 1

The most stable conformer for 3,3-dimethylhexane viewed along the C3−C4 bond will have two ethyl groups in anti position and gauche interactions between two methyl groups and one ethyl group.

Start by drawing the bond line notation for the compound

\

Notice that you have one ethyl group and two methyl groups attached to C3, and two hydrogens and one ethyl group attached to C4.

Start by using a Newman projection template to draw the first staggered projection
