Each method has its own advantages, depending upon the circumstances.
Notice that when drawing the Newman projection of the eclipsed conformation of ethane, you cannot clearly draw the rear hydrogens exactly behind the front ones. This is an inherent limitation associated with representing a 3-D structure in two dimensions.
Conformational isomerism involves rotation about sigma bonds, and does not involve any differences in the connectivity of the atoms or geometry of bonding. Two or more structures that are categorized as conformational isomers, or conformers , are really just two of the exact same molecule that differ only in rotation of one or more sigma bonds. Although there are seven sigma bonds in the ethane molecule, rotation about the six carbon-hydrogen bonds does not result in any change in the shape of the molecule because the hydrogen atoms are essentially spherical.
Ethane is an organic chemical compound with chemical formula C 2H 6. At standard temperature and pressure, ethane is a colorless, odorless gas. Like many. Ethane, a colourless, odourless, gaseous hydrocarbon (compound of hydrogen and carbon), belonging to the paraffin series; its chemical formula is C2H6.
Rotation about the carbon-carbon bond, however, results in many different possible molecular conformations. In order to better visualize these different conformations, it is convenient to use a drawing convention called the Newman projection.
In a Newman projection, we look lengthwise down a specific bond of interest — in this case, the carbon-carbon bond in ethane. This angle between a sigma bond on the front carbon compared to a sigma bond on the back carbon is called the dihedral angle.
In this conformation, the distance between the bonds and the electrons in them is maximized. Maximizing the distance between the electrons decreases the electrostatic repulsion between the electrons and results in a more stable structure.
This is the highest energy conformation because of unfavorable electrostatic repulsion between the electrons in the front and back C-H bonds. Torsional strain or eclipsing strain is the name give to the energy difference caused by the increased electrostatic repulsion of eclipsing bonds.
We will focus on the staggered and eclipsed conformers since they are, respectively, the lowest and highest energy conformers.

Fuel flexibility Heavier gases, such as ethane, propane and butane, are commonly referred to as natural gas liquids NGLs. The optimal operating window of a lean-burn, dual-fuel engine is summarised in Figure 5. Today, fracking accounts for more than half. Workers, dragging heavy cables and chains, wore closed-channel headsets so they could hear each other, even from a few feet away, over the roar of the truck engines and other equipment. In order to uncover the secrets of ethane oxidation, Musat, who has been working at the UFZ since , exploited the possibilities offered by the ProVIS technology platform.
