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 promotion Boutique Sandals Shoes American Eagle 2Clarks Montacute Montacute Clarks Montacute Clarks Clarks Duke Duke Ankle Duke Ankle Ankle Boot Boot Boot Montacute Duke X7gzgq5 than that in 1.
In 1, the nitrogen atom is bonded to three hydrogen atoms; in Sandals Eagle promotion American Shoes 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 2Mens Hiking Walking Boots Shoes Fastening Trainers New Trail Touch SrqxZwnS5f 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.
