Newman Projections A Way to Analyze Noncyclical Conformations Conformations Conformations are the different positions a molecule can bend into. Atoms and bonds remain the same on the molecule, the only variation is the angles in which certain parts of molecule are bent or twisted. Molecules have conformations with high strain as well as conformations with low strain. High strain conformations are when certain parts of the molecule that repel are forced to be close to one another. Molecules, therefore, want to have a low strain structure. Newman Projections are one way to look at the conformation of a noncyclical molecule. How do I make a Newman Projection? 1) First, you will need a molecule with a small chain of carbons such as this one: 2) Then, you will need to line up two of the center carbons. For this case, we will line up the 2 and 3 carbon as labeled on the above image. The 2 carbon will be in front, and the 3 carbon will be in the back.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
