Naming Techniques

Postby Mirna_Velasco_1L » Mon Mar 06, 2017 8:19 pm

I am having a hard time finding the longest parenting chain in the molecule and naming molecules. I am always off by one carbon so instead of counting seven, I count six. Does any one has a technique they want to share with me? I will greatly appreciate it.

I would draw it out completely, this helps me. When drawing it out, try to make straight lines of all the possible parent chains and find th longest one. Numbering the carbons helps too
