Practice Naming Alkanes
Want to eat organic nomenclature problems up for breakfast? Let's put the system for naming alkanes to work and practice organic chemistry nomenclature 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 do some organic chemistry nomenclature practice 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?
I'd love to hear your feedback and suggestions in the comments below!
