Differences in Naming Compounds

Postby HoganFenster2E » Sat Feb 27, 2016 4:02 pm

Is (3Z, 5E)-3-bromoocta-3,5-diene the same as:
(3Z, 5E)-3-bromo-3,5-octadiene?

In other words, is it ok to say 3,5-octadiene instead of putting the 3,5 between octa and diene?

Hi Hogan!

Yes, these compounds should be the same thing; both tell you where the double bonds are.

Hope this helps!
