Drawing the Chair Conformation of a Substituted Cyclohexane
Draw 1,1-dimethylcyclohexane in a chair conformation, indicating whichmethyl group in your drawing is axial and which is equatorial.
S t r a t e g y
Draw a chair cyclohexane ring using the procedure shown in Figure 4.10, and then put two methyl groups on the same carbon. The methyl group in the rough plane of the ring is equatorial, and the one directly above or below the ring is axial.
