VSEPR:

Electrons around an atom repeleach other, and will move apart as far as possible to have space.

The furthest away electrons can get in

Carbon’s 4 bonds is 109.5o apart.

109.5°

The bond angles of carbon are 109.5°.


Vsepr

Carbon atoms in alkanes can rotate (twist) freely around each other.

Multiplebonds restrict twisting or rotating.


Vsepr

  • Cis/Trans isomers

  • Same formula - different arrangement of branches around the double bond.

  • “cis” or “trans” shows different arrangement.

  • Sometimes called - Geometric isomers

2-butene


Vsepr

Cis/Transis possible only when each carbonin the double bondhasa ‘bigger’ end between its other bonds.

NOT every alkene has a cis or trans configuration.

2-butene


Vsepr

cis - largest alkyl groups on the same side of the double bond.

cis-2-butene


Vsepr

trans - largest alkyl groups on opposite sides.

trans-2-butene

2-methyl-1-butene

DOESN’T have a bigger end on each carbon on the double bond – NO cis/trans
