Naming

Postby Patrick Wilson 2B » Wed Mar 01, 2017 8:07 pm

Can it be a cyclo _____ if it forms any closed shaped, like squares, pentagons, etc. ??? Also if there are two methyl groups you have dimethyl but when alphabetizing do you categorize it off of the M from "methyl" or the D from "Di"? Thanks!

Hi there! I can answer your second question. If there are two methyl groups, which is dimethyl, alphabetize the dimethyl using the m from methyl. Prefixes are not taken into account when alphabetizing! Hope that helps!

Yes! for your first question. After looking it up, its called a cyclo when it is joined up in any ring.
This is the site I got it from http://www.chemguide.co.uk/basicorg/con ... names.html if you look for the cyclo info you can get a more depth explanation of it.
