Unformatted text preview: 3 ) 4 C, has three carbons in its longest continuous chain and so is named as a derivative of propane. There are two methyl groups at C-2, and so it is a 2,2-dimethyl derivative of propane. ( c ) First write out the structure in more detail, and identify the longest continuous carbon chain. There are f ve carbon atoms in the longest chain, and so the compound is named as a deriva-tive of pentane. This f ve-carbon chain has three methyl substituents attached to it, making it C CH 3 CH 3 CH 3 CH 2 C H CH 3 CH 3 IUPAC name: 2,2-dimethylpropane Common name: neopentane CH 3 CCH 3 CH 3 CH 3 IUPAC name: 2-methylbutane Common name: isopentane methyl group at C-2 CH 3 CHCH 2 CH 3 CH 3 IUPAC name: pentane Common name: n-pentane CH 3 CH 2 CH 2 CH 2 CH 3 2,6,10,14-Tetramethylhexadecane (phytane) 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16...
