Naming structure

Postby Anh Khoa 3E » Wed Mar 15, 2017 4:11 pm

if I have a neopentane structure, can I name it as 2,2-dimethylpentane? Is neopentane preferred over 2,2-dimethylpentane?

The IUPAC naming of neopentane is dimethyl propane.


2,2-dimethylpentane would be the IUPAC name of neoheptane.

Return to “*Alkanes”
