Practice Naming Alkanes
Want to eat organic nomenclature problems up for breakfast? Let's put the system for naming alkanes to work and revise the process with one big, convoluted molecule - I'm calling it "alkane spaghetti"!
An IUPAC name for alkane spaghetti
My previous post aimed to help you become a ninja at naming alkanes, and from there you'll be ready for more complicated structures. Let's practice the system for naming alkanes by tackling a big, multi-substituted alkane. I like to call this one "alkane spaghetti":
How did you go? Did you get it all correct, or were there some stumbling blocks? Did you find this style of multi-part, interactive, guided problems useful? Interesting? And,.. for another course, what would you like now that you've conquered alkane spaghetti?
