IUPAC vs. Common names

Postby Kristen_Power_1C » Wed Mar 01, 2017 3:40 pm

So I don't know if I simply missed it in lecture, but how do we know when to use IUPAC naming instead of simply using common naming?

Common names apply to specific molecules, but Lavelle said that he's not going to specify the type of naming that we must do (IUPAC vs common), so we can just use IUPAC any time a question asks to name a molecule.
