Quiz #3 Prep 1 pg 43

Postby 704578485 » Thu Mar 03, 2016 9:57 am

One of the questions on the first quiz prep(question 4) asks to draw a line structure with vinyl. Are we expected to know what vinyl is for the quiz and final?

Yes, you should. Also, using vinyl as a substituent leads to a parent chain of nonane. However, if naming this compound by IUPAC rules, the alkene would take precedence and the parent chain would then be a 1-octene.
