Correct Naming

Postby Dianna Grigorian 1C » Sat Mar 04, 2017 4:02 pm

Where does the suffix "diene" come from? For example in problem 1.21, why is the correct answer 5-Methylcyclopenta-1,3-diene and not 5-Methyl-1,3-Cyclopentene?

It is a diene because there are two double bonds in the ring - if it was only one double bond, it would be cyclopentene.
