Acyclic Conformations

  • Page ID
  • An understanding of the factors that go into determining the lowest energy conformation of acyclic molecules is required to understand the stereochemical outcomes of many reactions. Here we will discuss how steric, electronic, and stereoelectronic effects influence the conformation of acyclic organic molecules.
