Cis-Decalin conformations

Conformational ring flip

Click the structures and reaction arrows to view the 3D models and animations respectively

Cis-decalin rings flip in exactly the same manner as cyclohexane and at the same rate.

The cis ring junction is highlighted by blue hydrogens. The ring inversion is caused by a conformational change.
