2015 Final 9A second molecule

Postby Megan Ren 2B » Sun Mar 13, 2016 12:05 pm

Hi, the answer to the second molecule in 9A of the 2015 final is 1-(3-chlorocycloheptyl)-2-methylpronan-2-ol and I was wondering why the cycloheptane is treated as a substituent here. Is it because the alcohol as the functional group takes priority even though it's on the shorter chain? Thank you!

Yes, the functional group takes priority over the cycloheptane in this problem.
