Unformatted text preview: ( d ) Again the tert-butyl group is equatorial; however, in cis-1-tert-butyl-4-methylcyclohexane the methyl group on C-4 is axial. 3.11 Isomers are different compounds that have the same molecular formula. Compare the molecular formulas of the compounds given to the molecular formula of spiropentane. Only the two compounds that have the molecular formula C 5 H 8 are isomers of spiropentane. 3.12 Two bond cleavages convert bicyclobutane to a noncyclic species; therefore, bicyclobutane is bicyclic.
