# Why should I convert Newman projection to bond line notation?

Aug 9, 2015

You would convert a Newman projection to a bond-line notion to show more clearly the connectivity of the carbon atoms.

#### Explanation:

(from chemistry.oregonstate.edu)

The diagram above shows the conformations about the $\text{C3-C4}$bond of a hydrocarbon.

If you draw the bond-line structure, it becomes clearer that the compound is 2,5-dimethylhexane.
