Unformatted text preview: 1-((1R)-1-methylpropoxy)-3-hexanone OH B is more stable. In more stable chairs, methyl group is equatorial, so in A, OH is axial, in B, OH is equatorial = more stable. A B OH D is more stable. In the more stable chairs, the Cl is equatorial, so no difference. In the less stable chairs, the Cl is axial. In C, it would be 1,3-diaxial to one of the methyl groups. In the less stable chair of D, the Cl would only be 1, 3 diaxial to H's. D C Cl Cl R H-SnBu 3 Bu 3 Sn H-SnBu 3 + F Bu 3 Sn...
