- 14. The Cis , Trans System <ul><li>Configuration is determined by the orientation of atoms of the main chain </li></ul>
- 15. The E , Z System <ul><ul><li>uses priority rules (Chapter 3) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>if groups of higher priority are on the same side, the configuration is Z (German, zusammen ) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>if groups of higher priority are on opposite sides, the configuration is E (German, entgegen ) </li></ul></ul>

- 17. Cis,Trans Isomerism <ul><li>Cycloalkenes </li></ul><ul><ul><li>in small-ring cycloalkenes, the configuration of the double bond is cis </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>these rings are not large enough to accommodate a trans double bond </li></ul></ul>

Cis,Trans Isomerism <ul><ul><li>trans -cyclooctene is the smallest trans cyclooctene that has been prepared in pure form and is stable at room temperature </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>the cis isomer is 38 kJ (9.1 kcal)/mol more stable than the trans isomer </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>the trans isomer is chiral even though it has no chiral center </li></ul></ul>

Dienes, Trienes, and Polyenes <ul><li>For alkenes containing two or more double bonds, change the infix - en - to - adien -, - atrien -, etc. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>those containing several double bonds are often referred more generally as polyenes </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>following are three dienes </li></ul></ul>

- 29. Fatty Acids <ul><ul><li>carbon chains of saturated fatty acids exist largely in the staggered, anti-conformation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>because of their high degree of order, they pack together well and are held together by dispersion forces </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>as a result both saturated fatty acids and triglycerides derived from them are solids at room temperature </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>following is a saturated triglyceride </li></ul></ul>

Fatty Acids <ul><ul><li>cis double bonds place kinks in the chains of unsaturated fatty acids </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>unsaturated fatty acids and the triglycerides derived from them do not pack as well in a crystal lattice as their saturated counterparts, and have weaker dispersion forces between their molecules </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>butter fat, for example, has a high content of saturated fatty acids and is a solid at room temperature </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>salad oils (from plant oils) have a high content of polyunsaturated fatty acids and are liquid at room temperature </li></ul></ul>
