Highest Priority Atom.

How do you determine which atom or atom group is the highest priority?

Typically, you will not be asked to name a molecule or draw a structure with two high priority functional groups where you would have to make this call. However, priority goes (from highest to lowest) carboxylic acid, aldehyde, ketone, alcohol, amine, alkene, alkyne, alkane, ether, alkyl halide.
