Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Cynthia on Sunday, February 10, 2008 at 3:41pm.

Below is the question I am trying to answer. I think after much debate, I may have it. Does anyone know if I am close to being right?

Does cis and trans isomeric compounds display different properties? Why?

Cis means on the same side and trans means on the opposite side. Cis Isomeric compounds are different from trans isomeric compounds because trans isomers are more stable. This is because the large groups attached to the double bond are further apart.
