6.3 Drawing Chair Conformations
A six-membered ring is an interesting case of conformational analysis.
There are many ways in which this compound can be used.
The chair, the boat, and the twist-boat are all in your textbook.
The chair is the most stable part of cyclohexane.
You can almost imagine a person sitting on this structure.
The chair and its substituents are hard to draw for most students.
We will learn how to draw the chair correctly.
We can't see more about chairs until we know how to draw them.
You have to practice this step by step.
It's difficult to place substituents on the ring when you draw the chair sloppily.
You lose silly points on your exam.
Take the time to learn how to draw it.
We can begin drawing substituents connected to the ring.
They go straight up and down.
The substituents are pointing at the sides.
If we draw a line and don't put anything at the end of it, it means we have a methyl group.
