Cycloalkane with Only One substituent

Postby Andrew M 2J » Fri Mar 03, 2017 8:42 pm

Can we assume if a cycloalkane has only one substituent, then the naming doesn't have any numbers in it? Because if there is only one substituent, only one carbon is attached to a "non-carbon" and thus it can only be numbered 1?

Yes, I believe that is correct!

Yeah, it's also explained on p.96 of the course reader that one substituent means no numbering.
