Chapter 3 8 Longest Chain The number of carbons in the longest chain determines the base name: ethane, hexane. ( Listed in Table 3.2, page 82.) If there are two possible chains with the same number of carbons, use the chain with the most substituents . C CH 3 CH 2 CH 3 CH CH 2 CH 2 CH 3 CH CH 2 CH 3 H 3 C H 3 C =>
