Is it ok if we name everything using only IUPAC rules?

In addition to knowing those rules, you should be able to use iso and neo when naming.

Technically, every molecule can be named with IUPAC naming. However, naming becomes complicated without the use of common naming for instances such as multiple substituents on a substituent. This is why you should know and become familiar with the common names and what they would like like in line structures.

Neo is used for pent and up only right?
