Nomenclature (3-3) h Since the names of all organic compounds are based on alkanes, a brief summary of the rules of nomenclature is necessary. Table 3-2 gives you the names of the first 20 common straight chain alkanes (also see slide 79). 105 h Systematic Names or IUPAC names: IUPAC: International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry

h Rule 1 Find the longest continuous chain of C atoms and use the name of this chain as the base name of the compound. 106

h If there is a choice between 2 or more chains of equal length, use the one with the greater # of substituents, it simplifies the name. 108

h Rule 2 number the longest chain beginning with the end of the chain nearest a substituent. You always want the positions of the substituents to be as low as possible. 1 7 109 2 3 4 5 6 7 1 2 3 4 5 6 positions of substituents: 3, 4, 5, 6 = 18 positions of substituents: 2, 3, 4, 5 = 14

Rule 3 Name the substituents attached to the longest chain as alkyl groups. Give the location of each alkyl group using the carbon # to which it is attached. The name and the position must be 110 separated by a hyphen. Use alphabetical order to name the substituents, not the number of their positions.

Rule 4 (multiple groups) When 2 or more of the same substituents are present, use prefixes di (2), tri (3), tetra (4), … to avoid naming them more than once. (prefix such as di-, tri- tetra- etc are not used to determine the alphabetical order) 111 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 3-ethyl-2,4,5-trimethylheptane
