Rule 2: Name the smaller of the two alkyl groups as an alkoxy group (–OR) where you include the smaller alkane and the oxygen of the ether bond. Here, the –yl ending becomes –oxy. Eg . methyl becomes methoxy, isopropyl becomes isopropoxy. Rule 3: Place the alkoxy name with a number locator in front of the parent name. Rule 4: Name all other substituents on the parent chain, giving numbering priority to the alkoxy group.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
