The cyclohexadiene porition of 1-tertiarybutyl-1, 4-dihydronaphthalene exists in a puckered rather than planar conformation at room temperature, with approximately equal populations of the isomer with the t-butyl group “axial” and “equatorial.” Analysis of chemical shifts and coupling constants was aided by use of a LAOCOON III program.
