Is skew and gauche the same thing?

7 years ago


Answers : (1)


No they aren't.

In conformations of butane along C2-C3 bond,when in newmann projections we represent two methyl groups at 60. position , conformation is gauche.

Skew conformations are infinite conformations in between the specific ones formed due to rotation along the bond but they are not anti,staggered, or gauche.
