Give the IUPAC name of Butan-2-oic acid
Asked by sharmistha.panda | 29th May, 2011, 12:00: AM
This molecule is not possible, as the acid group-COOH can not be present in the middle of a carbon chain. Plz correct the molecule.
However a 4-carbon saturated acid is butanoic acid. There may be isomers is some branching is present in the molecule.
