  • 1. CH264 1 CH264/3 Organic Chemistry II Cyclohexane Rings Dr Andrew Marsh C515 a.marsh@warwick.ac.uk Dr David J Fox B510 d.j.fox@warwick.ac.uk
  • 2. CH264 2 Today’s Lecture 1. Cyclohexane conformation 2. Drawing cyclohexane chairs 3. Monosubstituted cyclohexanes 4. Disubstituted cyclohexanes, decalins and steroids
  • 3. CH264 3 Angle strain in rings 24.5° 9.5° 0.5° -5° "angle strain" (divided between two ring bonds) 9.17 6.58 1.24 0.02 38.4 27.5 5.19 0.09 strain per CH2 group (kcal mol-1) strain per CH2 group (kJ mol-1) "angle strain" is (109° - ring angle)/2
  • 4. CH264 4 Cyclohexane is ‘strain free’ A planar arrangement of the six methylene groups in cyclohexane does not give a tetrahedral shape for every carbon atom - this is achieved by puckering the ring. Cyclohexane does this by adopting mainly two conformations the CHAIR and the BOAT. chair boat chair CGW p.371
