Unformatted text preview: 2) In a branched alkane, some of the C atoms are not part of the longest continuous chain (the parent chain). Identify the parent chain. Tip : Start at any end of a chain. Trace along with your finger until you reach another end. Try all possibilities. The path which incorporates the most C atoms without lifting your finger is the parent chain. 3) If two or more chains within a structure have the same length, the parent chain is the one that contains more branches. 4) Number the parent chain from one end to the other in the direction that gives the lower possible number to the first branch. If there is more than one substituent, the alternative numbering schemes are compared number by number. The scheme which gives the lower number at the first point of difference is correct. 5) Name each substituent group, and identify the number of the parent chain C atom to which it is attached....
