prop-1-enyl vs prop-1-ene

Postby Kevin_Li_2F » Tue Feb 28, 2017 1:22 am

I've seen both used in the textbook. Is prop-1-enyl simply a way of writing prop-1-ene when a substituent of Benzene? They both seem to refer to a propyl with a double bond on the 1 to 2 carbon.

Yes, when you are naming the substituents you use the -enyl form instead of the -ene form.
