4.3: Cyclohexane: A Strain-Free Cycloalkane - Chemistry ...
Conformations of Cyclohexane. A planar structure for cyclohexane is clearly improbable. The bond angles would necessarily be 120º, 10.5º larger than the ideal tetrahedral angle. Also, every carbon-carbon bond in such a structure would be eclipsed. The resulting angle and eclipsing strains would severely destabilize this structure.
