Find the most stable conformer of 1,2-dibromo-1-phenyl ethane.
This ? @Vivek_Pamnani
How? Why wouldn't Br atoms be 60° separated?
After all, Ph is a big group with \beta substitution.
I think you're correct
What's the answer @Vivek_Pamnani ?
I say C is relatively more stable because Ph-Br repulsion > Br-Br repulsion
Yeah , so c is corrct
In ans key, D is given correct.
I think because of ph repulsion with H ,
It will lower stability .
@Vivek_Pamnani what you say
H is a teeny-tiny atom. It shouldn't be considered when the big atoms are in play.
