E and Z configurations of 2-Chlorobutenedioc
« on: November 21, 2004, 08:47:17 PM »
why is that a (Z)-2-chlorobutenedioc acid reacts MUCh faster than a (E)- configuration?

hey buddy
the Z isomer has close carbonyl groups making the other atoms along the C=C stable.
This may just be a possible reason,please check it with Mitch

Need a bit more info.
Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex
