In the most stable conformation of trans-1-isopropyl-3-methylcyclohexane, what positions do the methyl and isopropyl groups occupy?

a) methyl group-axial, isopropyl group-equatorial
b) methyl group-equatorial, isopropyl group-equatorial
c) methyl group-axial, isopropyl group-axial
d) methyl group equatorial, isopropyl group-axial

  • Organic Chem -

    would it be: "A"??

  • Organic Chem -

    The larger group will be equatorial and as they are trans 1,3 then the methyl must be axial. Yes A.
