Compounds Containing One Functional Group Examples

By now you should be able to figure out how numbering is done.

Nomenclature of one functional group example : 2-Chlorobuta-1,3-diene

2-Chlorobuta-1,3-diene

(CH3)2C=CHCH2CHO

We may also write it like this :

Nomenclature of one functional group example : 4-Methylpent-3-en-1-al

4-Methylpent-3-en-1-al

OHC-CHO

Ethane-1,2-dial

Look, how N is used to write the alkyl group of other side of amide

Nomenclature of one functional group example : 3-Ethyl-N-methylhexan-1-amide

3-Ethyl-N-methylhexan-1-amide

[(CH3)2CH]3COH

2,4-Dimethyl-3-(1-methylethyl)pentan-3-ol

How?

Because it can be simplified as :

Nomenclature of one functional group example : 2,4-Dimethyl-3-(1-methylethyl)pentan-3-ol

CH3CHOHCH2CH(CH3)CH3

4-Methylpentan-2-ol
