I've been taught that in a wedge-dash diagram, the wedge represents a bond above the plane of the paper, and the dash represents a bond below the plane.
Accordingly, I expected the structure of this particular conformer of 1,2-dichloro-1,2-difluoroethane to have the fluorine groups in a trans orientation. I am aware that conformers can interconvert, but my question is about the wedge-dash representation of this particular conformer; the representation obviously cannot interconvert.
In other words, I was expecting the structure to have the following sawhorse projection:
But when I ran it through MolView, I got the following structure, in which both fluorine groups seem to be above the plane.
That is, the structure had the following sawhorse projection:
Am I missing something? Or is the 3D structure from MolView wrong? I am not referring to the R/S configurations here; my doubt is only in the wedge-dash representation.
