Naming of Alkenes

Postby Aditya Mamtora 2C » Sat Mar 18, 2017 3:22 pm

When naming alkenes with multiple double bonds, suppose a hexene with 2 double bonds, do we end the molecule name with hexa diene or just hexdiene?

It's probably just hexdiene because when going from hexane to hexene, we just keep the prefix hex


Return to “*Alkenes”
