The product structure of D6h is (the decompositions of most common point groups are given in ref 5)
n a h 8 The supergroup is appropriate for the attempt to separate isomers (at least at reasonable temperatures) while the point group is appropriate for the low temperature NMR.
The groups of eq 4 and 5 are isomorphic since they have the same product structure of primative groups having the same orders. The question naturally arises as to when the supergroup is the appropriate group to use in describing a system. The answer to this depends either upon the energy barrier for the isodynamic operation in relation to the energy of the experiment being performed’ or upon the mean lifetime of a conformation in relation to the time scale of the experiment. In the case of cyclohexane, for example, no enantiomers of cis-1,2-dibromocyclohexanecan be isolated; however, at low temperatures the axial and equatorial protons of cyclohexane itself can be observed as distinct NMR sig-
