Unformatted text preview: large chloro group equatorial. Ring “flip” generates the less stable conformation with the large chloro group axial. Each of these two diastereomers is chiral. F H H Cl F H H F H H Cl F H H Cl trans-1-chloro-3-fluorocyclohexane less stable diastereomer These two forms are diastereomers. more stable diastereomer flip Neither mirror image is superimposable on the original - both diastereomers are chiral.
