Which of the following alkenes is most stable?
Alkenes- stability and structure
The structural stability of an alkene is affected by various factors like:-
1) Conjugation with other C=C bonds.
2) Degree of alkyl substitution on the double-bonded carbon atoms.
3) The orientation of substitution on the C=C bond.
4) Endocyclic vs Exocyclic nature of the C=C bond.
Answer and Explanation: 1
Consider the alkenes given below:-
Alkenes A, B, and C are endocyclic cyclohexenes with varying degrees of substitution. According to Saytzeff ...
