Br C-2 In the first conformation shown , the bromine atoms are not coplanar and c annot eli minate. Rotati on in this l arge ring can place the two bromines anti-coplanar, generating a trans al kene in the ring. (Use models ! ) t rans-cyclodecene b H 7 -23 The stereochemical requirement of E2 elimination is anti-coplanar; in cyc lohexanes , thi s translates to trans-diaxial . B oth dibromides are trans, but because the t-butyl group must be in an equatorial position , only the left molecule c an h ave the bromines diaxial.
