Order When Naming

Postby Eliza_Beglari_2L » Wed Mar 15, 2017 8:04 pm

When naming a cyclohexane that has 1 ethyl and 2 methyl substituent on either the 1st or 3rd carbon, would you put the 1 with the ethyl and the 3 with the methyl or the other way around? (Is it 1-ethyl-3,3-dimethyl-cyclohexane or 3-ethyl-1,1-dimethyl-cyclohexane?)

I believe it is supposed to be 3-ethyl-1,1-dimethyl-cyclohexane because 1,1,3 goes before 1,3,3.
