"Ethoxy" substituent

Postby Laila Sathe 1D » Sun Feb 28, 2016 1:05 pm

In the examples in the course reader, there's one on page 96 that has the substituent "ethoxy" on a parent chain. How do you know to name the substituent this?

It is basically hydroxy (-OH), but replace the hydr portion with the name of the carbon chain (in your instance ethoxy (-OCH2CH3).
