Nomenclature

Postby Blake_Katsev_2E » Fri Mar 10, 2017 3:16 pm

Do we need to know common names because some problems assigned ask us for the common and the IUPAC but we havnt really gone over how to use common names with functional groups and common names just in general. Also what is the functional group name of a double and triple bond?

Common names will probably be on it. It's touched upon on page 94 of the course reader. And if you need better explanations, khan academy has some great videos that have really helped me with naming.

It is probably safer (and more convenient!) to know them.

There is a considerable number of functional groups that include a carbon-oxygen double bond; this is called a carbonyl. A functional group that includes a carbon-nitrogen double bond is called an imine.

I feel like it would be most important to know neo- and iso-, probably not so much for the other ones listed in the course reader. I remember Dr. Lavelle saying that some of the common names are actually not commonly used anymore (like vinyl I think).
