Investigate steric interactions in cyclohexane derivatives.
- Create and optimize a cyclohexane molecule
- Add methyl substituents to 1 and 3 positions in diequatorial positions, optimize and note the energy
- Delete diequatorial substituents, to return to cyclohexane, optimize again
- Place methyl substituents in 1,3-diaxial positions, optimize and note the movement of the groups and the energy
