Unformatted text preview: If A-1 is a higher priority atoms than B-1, then A is higher priority than B. If A-1 and B-1 are the same atom, then compare the second highest priority atoms directly bonded to A and B (A-2 with B-2); if A-2 is a higher priority atom than B-2, then A is higher priority than B. If A-2 and B-2 are identical atoms, compare A-3 with B-3. X A B B-2 A-3 A-1 B-1 A-2 B-3 4. If a difference still can not be found, move out to the next highest priority group (A-1 and B-1 in the diagram) and repeat the process. 5. Multiple bonds are considered as an equivalent number of single bonded atoms....
