Naming Multiple Double Bonds in a Molecule

Postby Janelle Lau 3K » Sun Feb 28, 2016 6:56 pm

If there are multiple double bonds present between carbon atoms in a hydrocarbon molecule, how would we alter the name? For instance, for one double bond molecule with 6 carbons in its longest carbon chain, it'd be 2-hexene. But if there was another double bond adjacent to this double bond, would we call it 2,3-dihexene or 2,3-hexdiene or 2,3-hexadiene?

It would be 2,3-hexadiene.
