Unformatted text preview: and give IUPAC names for all of the isomers with the formula C 5 H 10 . Be sure to consider whether stereoisomerism is possible! 2. Consider the molecule 2,4-dimethylpentane. Draw a Newman projection of this molecule (sighting down the C2-C3 bond, from C2 to C3) for each of the three following conformations: a) the least stable staggered conformation b) the most stable staggered conformation c) the highest overall energy conformation 3. Consider the trisubstituted cyclohexane molecule below. Draw the two possible chair conformations for this molecule and, explaining your reasoning, state which conformation will be more stable. CN F...
