Chemical nomenclature is the term given to the naming of compounds. Chemists use specific rules and "conventions" to name different compounds.
Prefixes are certain words used before the name of the chemical, it tells about the number, chirality, isomeric form, stereochemical behavior,positional isomers, their structures etc.
