Common names vs. (iso and neo)

Postby Joann Hernandez 2F » Wed Feb 24, 2016 6:45 pm

For the quiz/exam, is it preferred to name the substituents by the iso and neo prefixes? Will we have points deducted if we stick to the common names with the numbers included?

iso a neu are just an alternate way of naming aside from IUPAC. I'm not sure how they grade it, but both would be right unless specified is what I would think
