Naming substituents

Postby Jeremy Jong 3H » Fri Feb 26, 2016 1:32 pm

When naming substituents, do we still try to minimize the numbers, or do we have to count from the parent chain?

The aim is always to minimize the numbers.

The prefix for the longest carbon chain/parent chain isn't minimized but the number in front of substituents is counted so that it is minimized.
