This compound is a secondary amine. The longest carbon chain attached to the nitrogen serves as the basis for the parent chain, which in this case is ethane (2 Carbon length), thus the parent chain is ethanamine. The other alkyl group (methyl) will be prefixed as a substituent with "N" as location identifier. These are in accordance with the IUPAC rules for nomenclature. See the structure below:
Hope this helps! Best of luck in your studies. :)
The question talks about writing IUPAC name of the compound. methyl group is present at nitrogen substituent, so it is written as n-methyl.
five membered saturated ring containing nitrogen is called pyrrolidine.
Please look at the answer carefully :
The main carbon chain is composed of four carbons (butane), and the amines are connected to the first and the third carbon chain.
Here's a clearer structure of the compound.
Hope this will help!
