Unformatted text preview: conformers. Distinguish between anti and gauche conformers. Draw chair and boat conformers of cyclohexane; distinguish axial and equatorial bonds; identify most stable / least stable conformers. Identify 1 , 2 , and 3 carbon atoms, hydrogen atoms, alcohols, alkyl halides, amines, etc. Identify and name the functional groups: alkene, alkyne, halo, amine, alcohol, ether, aldehyde, ketone, carboxylic acid, ester, etc. Identify stereocenters or chirality centers (stereogenic carbon atoms); designate absolute configuration around a stereocenter using R/S system. Determine the maximum number of stereoisomers for a molecule (i.e. 2 n ). Identify (and know the terms): enantiomers, diastereomers, and meso compounds. Use your knowledge of intermolecular attractions to predict physical properties of organic molecules....
