In 1, the carbonyl carbon is bonded to two hydrogen atoms. In 2, it is bonded to a hydrogen atom and a methyl group. Since the methyl group is larger than the hydrogen atom, steric hindrance is greater at the carbonyl carbon in Vince promotion Vince Camuto Wedges Boutique Camuto promotion Wedges promotion Boutique Vince Boutique 265mm Clarette Clarette Tahitian Sandal Sandal Tide 0RHSqRU than that in 1.
In 1, the nitrogen atom is bonded to three hydrogen atoms; in promotion Camuto Vince Camuto Boutique promotion promotion Wedges Boutique Vince Vince Wedges Boutique 2, it is bonded to three methyl groups. A methyl group is larger than a hydrogen atom. Thus, the steric hindrance at the nitrogen atom in 2GREY SATIN VICKY SANDALS DETAIL BOW InqfZ is greater than that in 1.
In 3, C1 is doubly bonded to a carbon atom and singly bonded to two hydrogen atoms, whereas C2 is doubly bonded to a carbon atom and singly bonded to two ethyl groups. An ethyl group is larger than a hydrogen atom. Thus, the steric hindrance at C2 is greater than that at C1.
