🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Torok's class at University of Massachusetts Boston.

Solution: The conformations of (+)-epichlorohydrin (1), viewed along the Ca—Cb bond, can be analyzed in exactly the same manner as the acyclic alkanes discussed in Chapter 4 (J. Phys. Chem. A 2000, 104, 6189–6196). (a) Draw all staggered conformations for 1 viewed along this bond.
