Nomenclature of Alcohols In the IUPAC naming system, there may be as many as four components to the name: Locant indicates the position of a substituent. Prefix names the substituent group. Parent is the parent alkane. Suffix names a key function. Examples CH 3 CH 2 CHCH 3 OH 2-butan ol locant parent suffix CH 3 CHCH 2 CH 2 OH CH 3 3-methyl-1-butan ol locant prefix locant parent suffix

IUPAC Rules for Naming Alcohols (1) Select the longest continuous chain containing the hydroxyl group as the parent. Drop the "e" in the alkane name and add the suffix "ol." (2) Number the chain from the end that gives a lower number to the position of the hydroxyl group. CH 3 CH 2 CHCH 2 OH CH 3 4 3 2 1 2-methyl-1-butan ol CH 3 CHCHCH 3 CH 3 OH 3-methyl-2-butan
