What are the IUPAC rules for naming alkanes?
1. Find the longest continuous carbon chain and give it the name per IUPAC rules.
2. List the substituents attached to the longest continuous carbon chain in alphabetical order.
3. Use the di, tri, tetra when the same substituent appears more than once.
4. Number the chain in the direction which gives the lower locant to a substituent at the first point of difference.
5. When two different numbering directions give the same number of locants, number in the direction that gives the lowest locant to the group that appears first in the name.
6. When two chains are of equal length, choose the one with the greater number of substituents as the parent
What are the IUPAC rules for naming cycloalkanes?
1. Count the number of carbons in the ring this is the base name of the ring.
2. Name the alkyl group and append it as a prefix to the cyclohexane. No locant is needed if it is monosubstituted.
3. When two or more different substituents are present, list them in alphabetical order, and number the ring in the direction than gives the lower number at the first point of difference.
4. Name the compound as a cycloalkyl substituted alkane if the substituent has more carbons than the ring.
What are the IUPAC rules for naming alkyl groups?
1. Number the carbons beginning at the point of attachment, proceeding in the direction that follows the longest chain.
2. Assign a base name according to the number of carbons in the correspondinb unbranched/cycloalkane and replace the -ane ending with -yl.
3. List the substituents attached to the base group in alphabetical order using replicating prefixes when necessary.
4. Locate substituents according to the numbering of the main chain described in the rules for naming alkanes.
What are sigma bonds?
Head on bonds, they bond on a line that connects the two nuclei.
What are pi bonds?
Side to side bonds, they connect above and below the line that connects the two bonding nuclei.
