Cis and Trans

Postby Junghyuk_Park_1I » Sat Mar 18, 2017 11:29 am

Is it possible to have more than one cis and trans configuration in one molecule (resulting from multiple double bonds)? If so, how would we go about naming such a molecule?

No, use E/Z.

How do we use E and Z in cycloalkenes with multiple double bonds? What's the quickest way to determine priority?
