How can we give names to the organic compounds by IUPAC method ?
Asked by | 25th Feb, 2008, 10:56: AM
First count the number of carbon atoms forming the longest continuos chain and give the root word.
C1---meth, C2---eth, C3---prop, C4----but, C5---pent, C6----hex, C7---hept, C8----oct, C9----non, C10---dec,
See cabon to carbon bonds and pri suffix it to root word. Than see if there is a functional group suffix it to ane, ene and yne by removing e. Any other atom or goup of atom left will be prefixed.
For single bonds suffix ane, for double bond write ene and for triple bond write yne. If the number of double bonds is 2 than add diene and so on.
alkyl, halo, nitro to be prefixed root word + pri suffix - e + sec suffix

- Dear sir/madame, I just learnt that ethyl is written as CH2CH3. i) Can we write it as C2H5? if not pls explain why ii) Or can we write it as CH3CH2? if not pls explain why And for NCERT is it necessary to learn to draw the structure of ethyl? if yes, pls draw the structure for me. Thank you
- Write the IUPAC name along with the method to find it.
- (a) What is the difference in the molecular formulae and masses of any two adjacent homologues? (b) Separate the given compounds of same homologous series. Name the series. HCHO, CH3OH, C2H5CHO, C3H7OH, C2H5OH, CH3CHO
