Common Names v IUPAC

Postby JasmineChavez 1E » Mon Feb 29, 2016 1:02 am

Since the common names were made before the IUPAC do we HAVE to know the common names and their structure at this point .. for example will we be given problems with common names rather than IUPAC names and be expected to draw them or give the formula based on that on the quiz or final?

If naming compounds, you can use IUPAC if you would like. However, there can be molecules given with common names and you would have to draw them.
